Run for Fun with UM Health-West

Join us virtually or in-person for the Metro Way 5K & YMCA Youth Races presented by Lake Michigan Credit Union. This family-friendly event exemplifies our enduring commitment to West Michigan. Even the name of the event, honoring our organization’s previous name, reflects our legacy of making a lasting difference in the health of our communities.
