What Evertt Takes Trail 5k
9/22/21 UPDATE: NO MORE FINISHERS MEDALS AVAIBLE FOR THOSE SIGNING UP AFTER 9/21/21
The Race has sold out as of 9/21/21. We would like to offer a discounted price for those still wanting to sign up and run, we will NOT have any finishers medals for those who sign up after 9/21/21. Please keep this in mind, this event is a charity so we would still love to have you come and join us but it's very unlikely that you would get a finishers medal unless those who paid the higher fee would donate the medal to those who signed up after it sold out.
Toe the starting line and travel through the colorful tree-lined trails of Isabella County Deerfield Nature Park on the last weekend of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, September 26, 2021, as runners and walkers embark on a journey to do What Everett Takes to bring an end to childhood cancer.
The What Everett Takes Trail 5K is held in honor of Everett House, a fierce two-year old diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and began his fight on November 30, 2020; benefits from this event will be donated toward childhood cancer research and treatment on behalf of the House Family. When you donate $50 we'll give you $10 off your entry fee or $100.00 and receive $15 off.
Join a community of friends, family, runners and walkers as we rise together to raise funds in the fight against childhood cancer and continued research towards a cure. You bring the smiles, we’ll provide the miles!
All finishers will receive a custom wood medal and you have the option to purchase a tri-blend T-shirt if ordered before September 10th.
