Funds raised through registration fees will be used to support initiatives and organizations throughout Kalamazoo that feature poverty reduction themes. The Pace for Poverty Run is a continuation of the annual Lindsay Cornelius Memorial Run, a very successful event that ran for several years. That event preceeded the Pace for Poverty and raised funds to support the local police and fire rescue units, as well as providing bike helmets to many in our community. We are grateful for the support and for the legacy that the Cornelius family have offered to the Pace for Poverty.
All events start and end behind the Gull Lake Middle School (9550 East M-89, Richland Michigan) The courses wind their way through streets neighboring the Gull Lake Schools, as well as the Richland countryside, with aid stations on all courses.
