Frances 5k + Festival

September 12 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

The Frances 5K will celebrate the life of Frances Nambi Kaneene on her heavenly birthday, September 12th. It will be held along the Hawk Island trails where she ran for over two decades, even during treatment. The location has a beach, playgrounds, lake and, most of all, is blessed by her spirit, by way of her ashes. We hope you will join for a day to walk or run and then, stay to be in community with each other, food, music, live performances and more.

To those who would like to participate virtually, we invite you to sign up and participate from a far, and you will receive all your gifts + a race t-shirt to right to your door.

The race proceeds will support the Frances Kaneene Scholarship at Michigan State University to provide students in her department, who were her heart and soul, opportunities to study abroad.
