Mike Sullivan

Description

The 5K for Mike is a virtual run/walk to honor Mike Sullivan who passed away in November 2021. Mike was an avid runner and active member of the Greenville Track Club. Mike ran regularly at GTC races and he and his family volunteered regularly helping with GTC races. Mike was an engineer at G.E. and ran for the G.E. Corporate Shield team where he enjoyed the camaraderie and fun of racing with fellow runners who were all friends to Mike. He was a devoted husband and father. We could go on and on but suffice it to say that wonderful people like Mike Sullivan only come around once in a while in life and he will be greatly missed.

The 5K for Mike has set a goal or $10,000 dollars. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the 5K for Mike will go into a special account set up by the Sullivan family and will be donated to Miracle Hill Ministries, here in Greenville. Miracle Hill does great things and is a very deserving recipient. If you would like to learn more about Miracle Hill, please click on the link below:

Race Course. The 5K for Mike is a virtual race so participants will run/walk on their own at any time and on any course they choose. We are asking that all participants complete a 5K distance. Participants may run the distance using a GPS app, they may run a familiar 5K course from a popular race in the area, or they can map their own course and go run it.  After completing their race, participants will have the opportunity to upload their results to the RunSignUp race page. There are no competitive awards for the 5K for Mike. Everyone gets an award - the wonderful feeling that comes with running to honor Mike Sullivan and giving a helping hand to people who need it most.

Participate. Please Invite your family, friends and co-workers to participate and run with you. If you didn't know Mike personally, run in memory of a loved one who touched your life the same way Mike Sullivan touched ours. All together, our footsteps will  further the mission of Miracle Hill, touching lives and warming the hearts of people in need.

Donations. When you go through the registration process, you will be asked if you want to make a donation to push us closer to the goal of $10,000. We've set up hierarchy of donation levels. You may choose a preset donation level or enter your own donation amount. We'll update the donation list on a daily basis and there will be a "fuel gauge" to show where we stand on making it to the $10,000 goal.

Thank You. Mike Sullivan was a great friend to many. We will miss seeing him at future races. We got to know him though the sport of running, and we grew to respect him when he offered to help us whenever we needed a hand. Thank you for participating in the 5K for Mike and contributing to a very worthy cause in his honor.
