On the 2nd Saturday in May, thousands of runners and walkers will descend on downtown Grand Rapids to celebrate 42 years of road running in the Amway River Bank Run. Five charity partners will benefit from the River Bank Run.
One those is Kids’ Food Basket, that serves critical sack suppers to thousands of children every day. Recently the Amway River Bank Run Road Warriors paid a visit to Kids’ Food Basket to pack up those sack suppers. Every dollar of what is raised through the race goes to serving children and families in our community.
If you’re taking part in the race, you can choose to run or walk for one of the charity partners. You can also make a donation to the charity of your choice. Since the Charity Partner Program started in 2009, more than $1.5 million has been raised.
