Wheatlake Walk/Fun Run to Raise Donations for Local Cancer Resource Center

BIG RAPIDS - Ferris State University faculty, staff and students and community members are invited to participate in the 4th annual Susan P. Wheatlake Cancer and Wellness Walk/Fun Run Saturday, May 22.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. at the Comstock House B & B, 414 Maple St. A registration fee of $15 includes a walk at your own pace and distance or SPW’s first “fun run” on Big Rapids’ scenic Riverwalk. The runners will take off at 9:45 a.m. and the walkers will get underway a few minutes later. Participants of all ages and gender are encouraged to participate.

Goody bags and t-shirts will be given to the first 100 registrants. There will also be refreshments, door prizes, raffles, silent auction and presentation by Dr. Ralph Crew, who practices ophthalmology in Big Rapids.

All proceeds from the walk/fun run will support the Susan P.
