Love Your Parks Virtual 5k

The mParks Foundation is hosting a Virtual 5K (3.1 miles) the month of September to raise funds for local recreation and park opportunities.  (You can run, walk, skateboard, SUP, bike, surf or swim a 5K anytime during the month of September.) 

The mParks Foundation has donated more than $3,000,000 to Michigan communities to build accessible playgrounds and waterparks. We have purchased handicapped accessible hunting blinds, have made it possible for people in wheelchairs to get to the water when they are at the beach, and have paid for lifts for people to get in and out of boats, at some of our State Parks. 

It is our goal to make recreation available to all Michigan citizens, regardless of ability. Each of our partnering communities has a specific project or program that the monies raised will go towards.

Thank you for helping us move Michigan forward as one of the top states in accessible recreation.

Below are resources to help you get involved and promote the Love Your Parks Virtual 5k in your communities.
