Bringing the Community Together for the Meijer LPGA 5k Run & Walk

The Meijer LPGA 5k Run & Walk presented by Kellogg’s® will once again bring the community together by featuring fun yet competitive challenges for the community, families, individuals and members of the media while benefiting the Meijer Simply Give program.

The race will be powered by Gazelle Sports, and will start at 8 a.m. June 18 at Rockford High School. Each participant will receive a Meijer LPGA 5k Run & Walk shirt, a complimentary breakfast provided by Kellogg’s®, and two daily tickets to the golf tournament, valid for any one day admission Tuesday through Sunday.

“The Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give offers something for everyone,” Meijer Co-Chairman Doug Meijer said. “The race is a great way to engage the entire Grand Rapids community while ultimately increasing awareness around hunger in the communities where our customers and team members work and live. Whether you are walking, running, or competing with a team, everyone can join us in this race against hunger.”

Additionally, the Meijer healthy living advisors and experts have teamed up with Gazelle Sports to build training programs for participants to use in preparation for the run.

Similar to last year, proceeds from the tournament – and each of the week’s festivities – will benefit the Meijer Simply Give program that restocks the shelves of food pantries throughout the Midwest. The Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give has raised more than $1.3 million for the Simply Give program.
