Gillespie Group, Lansing Brewing Company, Michigan Fitness Foundation and Playmakers came together to present monthly Brew Runs which began Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Known as the “Brew Run,” the race begins and ends at Lansing Brewing Company. The run encourages a healthier lifestyle and brings together beer lovers in the area. Participants have the chance to win raffle prizes, earn free swag as well as purchase a “Brew Run” shirt.
“We wanted to bring something fun and entertaining within the Stadium District community that also supports a great cause,” said Pat Gillespie, president of Gillespie Group.
“Playmakers and its nonprofit Fitness Foundation are excited to partner with Gillespie Group and Lansing Brewing Company to provide an event that promotes health and physical activity, and also highlights all the great things that are happening in downtown Lansing,” said Marcy Kinzer, executive director of Playmakers Fitness Foundation. This first run of the series benefits Volunteers of America (VOA). In place of a registration fee, runners or attendees are encouraged to bring gently used shoes to donate to the VOA, and make online donations.
