At Saturday’s race, on 2901 N. 10th St., attendees will observe a moment of silence for those who were impacted by the blast, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to support victims.

This is the fourth annual Sunburst Run, and it will include a 10K at 7:30 a.m. and a 5K at 9 a.m., following a moment of silence.

The event also supports local community parks and family programs through the Oshtemo Friends of the Parks.
