The first annual Neogen 5K went off without a hitch and we couldn’t have asked for better weather! A big thank you to all volunteers, coordinators and community members for hosting such a wonderful race. A total of 353 runners and walkers participated, and we are incredibly grateful for the $22,164 raised. The proceeds provided by our sponsors, participants and donors will benefit the new Herbert-Herman Cancer Center at Sparrow Hospital.
