Our Partners Make It Possible
The Mercy Health Seaway Run is a partnership between the Muskegon YMCA and Muskegon Rotary Club’s Healthy Muskegon County initiative; proceeds from the event help support these groups in their efforts to make Muskegon County a healthy place to live, learn, work and play.
Muskegon Rotary Club’s Healthy Muskegon County was prompted by the low results Muskegon County received in the County Health Rankings. The County Health Rankings, produced by the University of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, are based on a model of population health that emphasizes the many factors that, if improved, can help make communities healthier places to live, learn, work and play.
The Muskegon YMCA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to Building a Healthy Future for Muskegon. As a community based YMCA they address Muskegon’s health and wellness needs where they are most prevalent – at sites throughout the community like schools, churches and health centers. Every day they work to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background has the opportunity to be healthy and thrive. YMCA outreach includes evidence-based programs for diabetes, prevention, fighting childhood obesity, nutrition education, water safety, cancer survivor fitness, arthritis, management, and employee wellness.
Seaway Run & Expo is a community event focused on fitness, supported by Mercy Health & other partners.
