5K Warrior Team Challenge

posted Nov 1, 2013, 11:49 PM by mail @westgrand.org   [ updated Nov 2, 2013, 12:11 AM ]

The Hero’s to Hero’s/ Warrior Team Challenge event at Richmond Park is sponsored by WGNO. They need volunteers. This should be fun, it’s on November 9th at Richmond Park, they need volunteers from 9 AM till Noon. The volunteers are needed to:

Cook and or sell Hot dogs and hot chocolate.

To monitor the obstacles.

The funds from this event go 100% to Veterans who are suffering from PTSD.


We are coming together to host a 5k Team Challenge Race to raise money for our local wounded veterans.

www.grwarriorteamchallenge.com

The men and women of our military are trained to be courageous protectors overseas, but some of them return home and struggle with adjusting to civilian life. Too many of our injured veterans turn to alcohol and drug addiction as a coping mechanism, and in worst case scenarios, turn to suicide. Even with assistance, some cases of PTSD can be difficult to treat and affects these brave veterans and their families.

Several local businesses are coming together to sponsor a 5k Team Challenge Race on November 9, 2013, in honor of Veteran’s Day weekend. All proceeds from this race will go to Heroes to Heroes, an organization that helps heal our local veterans who are suffering from high-level PTSD. 

The three goals of this fundraiser are: 

1. Raise support to help MI veterans suffering from PTSD through Heroes to Heroes (www.heroestoheroes.com) and other local non-profits.

2. To strengthen bridges between our local soldiers, their families, and their supportive civilian community through honor, respect and interaction.

3. To clarify what it means to be an ethical protector, from serviceman to civilian in our local and global community.

 We need your support to:

1) Run in the Race

2) Volunteer for the Race

3) Donate what you can to support

 

Jennifer Franson is race director, Cathy Z. (owner of Westside Gym) is the race co-director and I (Craig Gray) designed the race route and the challenges myself, so if you decide to run the race I am confident that you will be both challenged and have fun while you are supporting our Vets that need our help.

 

Location:     Richmond Park     

                     Richmond NW

                     Grand Rapids, MI 49504

 

Date:             Saturday, November 9th - 2013

City View Chruch Trunk-or-Treat

posted Oct 3, 2013, 8:17 PM by mail @westgrand.org

A fun opportunity for West Grand Neighbors!

For the last two years the church has hosted a Trunk or Treat where residents of the neighborhood are invited to come park at the church and hand out candy to the kids from their trunks.  Last year they had about a dozen cars and hundreds of kids came through.  The overall response has been so positive that they are planning on doing this again this year and are hoping for a larger turn out.

City View Church is asking those who would like to participate to please try to dress up and decorate their trunks / cars as there will be a drawing and small prize for the best dressed and best decorated.  PLEASE keep in mind that this is a church event so nothing naughty or gory!  Also, if neighbors would like to participate, but can not provide their own candy or handout's, City View has SOME extra candy to hand out.

This years Trunk or Treat will be held on Halloween Night from 5-7 PM at City View Church (960 Alpine).  Neighbors may contact Cindy Parney at the church, 616-419-8181, for more details or to participate.
