Join us at Fifth Third Ball Park on Sunday, May 1st  at 12pm to participate in the 15th Annual Grand Rapids  Kidney Walk.

Walkers of all ages are invited to be part of the fun by walking individually or forming a team with family, friends, and co-workers. The day will include food and refreshments, incentive prizes for those raising funds, kids’ activities, and more.

Are you like me and get sick of running indoors? Need a great challenge? Check out the long stairs on Division near Monroe Ave in Grand Rapids. I remember my first time running them, I made it up and down about 8 times before literally puking! I heard about these stairs and figured, "Hey I'm in pretty good shape, they can't be that hard!" Check them out for yourself. I've also included a map to help you locate them even easier. Happy stair climbing! =)
