2020 Race for the Place: Cancelled
Dear Race for the Place Community,
The safety, health, and well-being of our community is our top priority, and we feel it is critical to do our part in the global effort to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
For this reason, the 26th annual Race for the Place 5K scheduled for April 19, 2020 will be cancelled.
The Race for the Place is the largest annual fundraiser for MSU Safe Place and allows our program to continue to provide vital services to the members of the MSU and greater Lansing communities who experience relationship violence and stalking. We are so grateful for the generous community support that we have received over the years.
We want to thank you for your interest in supporting MSU Safe Place and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause to those who registered and have been preparing for the race. If you registered for the race, you receive an email about your registration.
How can you help?
- If you are already registered, we ask you to consider donating your registration fees to Safe Place to support our program in this challenging time.
- Additional donations can be made through our RunSignUp page, or check out our website for other ways to support us: http://safeplace.msu.edu/support-msu-safe-place.
- Keep an eye out for the next Race for the Place 5K, to be scheduled in April 2021!
We’re grateful for the continued support from our sponsors, walkers/runners, our planning committee and volunteers who’ve made this event possible for the past 25 years. We look forward to our future Race for the Place events.
As circumstances safely allow, we encourage all community members to continue running, walking and moving! Exercise can be a helpful tool in reducing the stress and anxiety during challenging times like this. We hope everyone stays safe and we look forward to seeing you for Race for the Place in 2021!
The Race for the Place is the largest annual fundraiser for MSU Safe Place and allows our program to continue to provide vital services to members of the MSU and greater Lansing communities who experience relationship violence and stalking. The Race for the Place 5K course takes place on the beautiful campus of Michigan State University. Race for the Place is a fun-filled family event, with events for kids of all ages, MSU varsity athlete participation and a visit from Sparty!
