We also need help with the cake walk at Crestwood Middle School in the evening. If you can help, call Lorraine Beloncis at (616)656-5278 or click here for the volunteer form.

Runners will loop through neighborhoods and come back on the East West Trail to the finish line. Race is from 8:30am-9:30am. Cost is $25 per participant which includes a shirt. Must register by June 20 to receive a shirt. Packet pick up is available before the start of the race. Register online at https://runsignup.com/Race/MI/Kentwood/Autocam5k.


Be sure to get a prime spot along the new  parade route and show your Kentwood pride! The parade starts at 9:30am at Crestwood Middle School, travels south on Walma to Breton, turns west on 52nd, and ends at Challenger Elementary.
