Saturday, April 6, marks the 23rd annual Wheel Run Together on Grand Valley State University’s Campus in Allendale. Run, walk or hand cycle throughout campus while supporting an essential cause - Alternatives in Motion.

Alternatives in Motion is the central hub for recycling, distributing and maintaining mobility equipment for those in need. They have donated over 421 pieces of equipment and continue to help thousands that remain clients because of our commitment to maintain all of the equipment we place/donate in our community.

“This is my first year coordinating this event,” says Daniel Swanson, a student in the Grand Valley State University Physical Therapy program and Wheel Run Together event coordinator. “It has been an incredible privilege to work with an organization and so many individuals that have come together to give the gift of mobility.”

Registration closes Friday, April 5th, and individuals or teams can register online. This family friendly event will feature raffles, music, snacks and much more.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.

If each of our readers and content creators who values this community platform help support its creation and maintenance, The Rapidian can continue to educate and facilitate a conversation around issues for years to come.

Please support The Rapidian and make a contribution today.
