KENTWOOD, Mich. — The city of Kentwood has announced it is partnering with Hanger Clinic to host the Limb Loss Awareness 5K next month.

The event, scheduled to take place Saturday, April 30 on Bowen Boulevard at 9 a.m., will be held in observance of Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month, the city says.

We’re told registration is $30 until March 31 and will increase to $35 from April 1–29. Same-day registration will be $45.

There will also be a kid-friendly fun run that spans one mile starting at 11 a.m. ($10 per child), according to the city of Kentwood.

“Our Limb Loss Awareness 5K is more than a typical race,” says Recreation Program Coordinator Katelyn Bush. “In addition to health and wellness, this run is focused on inclusivity, awareness, relationships and making a difference in our local community.”
