Schools & Youth

A healthy community begins with our youngest citizens – by teaching kids healthy habits like physical exercise, we set them on a path for lifelong good health.

The Mercy Health Seaway Run offers a special price to encourage our young walkers and runners – youth 18 and under can register for as little as $5 (without a t-shirt, before June 14)!

We encourage schools, clubs, youth groups, and other youth organizations to get a group together to train for our 5K – running/walking together is fun!  Plus, for every 10 students/youth members that register, an adult can register for just $10 to participate with the kids!  Please email our Race Director Andrew Buikema at [email protected] for details.
