New in 2015, 100% of the race proceeds will benefit  Behavior Health Services (BHS) at St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea.  The beneficiaries provide a continuum of BHS to meet the specific needs of patients and their families in Chelsea and surrounding communities, addressing the physical, psychological, and social aspects of well-being.

St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea has provided BHS to our community for more than 40 years.  Our exceptional patient satisfaction scores and outcomes reflect the extraordinary care our physicians and staff provide to those in need.  Funds raised at this year’s race will benefit the transformation of the BHS hospital wing – renovations that include a modern design and more efficient use of space while adding to the comfort and care of patients.  Your partnership will help to enhance the healing environment of the BHS wing, improve the health and quality of life of patients, and allow St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea to continue to serve as a beacon of hope in our community.

Thank you to participants, volunteers and sponsors, we were able to make a sizable donation to the Chelsea Grace Clinic from 2014 Heart and Sole proceeds.  Visit Chelsea Update for details.
