March 2016 Newsletter

Thank you for your interest in the 4th Annual Flintstone Challenge 5K Race/Walk. Over the past 3 years, your support has allowed MSU medical students to raise more than $37,000 for the Flint Classroom Support Fund, a Great Idea Grant program that fosters interdisciplinary collaboration among teachers to initiate innovative learning programs that have impacted thousands of Flint students. 

You can now sponsor a young, local runner through our homepage! Your donation will go directly toward race registration for children of Flint Schools and various other community resource centers. Local Flint students, such as the high schoolers of Northwestern High School, are hard at work recruiting support for their Public School Fund. Please consider supporting the health, wellness, and future of the incredible young people of Flint!

We will also host the 3rd Annual Littlestone’s Challenge on Saturday, April 30, 2016 from 10 am - 2 pm in the MSU College of Human Medicine building downtown (old Flint Journal Building) for another day of FREE, healthy, educational fun for young participants!
