Run for Life

The Run for Life is an annual 5k Race and charity Walk.  All proceeds go to benefit the Women & Teens Crisis Pregnancy Center in Pontiac, MI. This year's race is being held in Sterling Heights at beautiful Dodge Park, the centerpiece of the Clinton River Parks system.  Dodge Park is accessed by car from Utica Rd. at Dodge Park Rd., directly across from Sterling Heights City Hall.  The address is 40620 Utica Rd., Sterling Heights, MI 48313.

Our course runs along the scenic Clinton River, providing a moderate challenge and beautiful sights and sounds.  Runners have been known to spot deer and hawks along the way!

Participants of all ages and skill levels are welcome.  Parents and grandparents, bring your little ones for a fun and healthy family activity or just to enjoy the park.  Infant and toddler strollers, either walking or running, are also welcome on the course.  We do ask that slower runners and walkers start at the back of the pack and stay to the right on the path. :)

Don’t want to run or walk?  Come and cheer us on.  Everyone is welcome!
