Ele's Race 5K Virtual Run/Walk

Your pace!  Your place!  Run!  Jog!  Walk!  At a park...in your neighborhood...on a trail.  Take your dog!  Spend time with your family!  Complete the 5K any day you'd like.  (If you'd like to submit your time to be entered to win a prize, that needs to be done by midnight, 7-26-20.)

Ele's Race 5K Run/Walk is an annual event aimed at raising awareness of, and funding for, grieving families in our Lansing, Michigan community.

Ele's Place provides grief support groups to children and teens (ages 3-18), young adults (ages 18-26) and any adult who brings a child to group. These services are provided at no cost thanks to our generous donors/supporters.

To learn more about our vision that 'no child should grieve alone', visit www.elesplace.org.
