The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has partnered with Epic Races to offer the inaugural HeartMISnow Virtual 5K. A portion of the proceeds will go back into Michigan state parks.
The HeartMISnow Virtual 5K is a great opportunity to get out in Michigan state parks, while helping raise funds for them at the same time. Participants choose where and when to complete their own 5K, as long as it's done outdoors. Participants receive a commemorative HeartMISnow finisher's medal as well as an event T-shirt.
"HeartMISnow is a great way to help meet health-minded resolutions in 2017," said Ron Olson, DNR Parks and Recreation Division chief. "The event also gives people another reason to visit and recreate in Michigan's great outdoors, while increasing physical activity and helping to raise funds for the DNR. We thank Epic Races for bringing this opportunity to the DNR."
To participate in the HeartMISnow Virtual 5K, follow these steps:
Share your experience on the 2017 HeartMISnow Virtual 5K Facebook page or get on Twitter or Instagram (@epicraces) using the hashtag #HeartMiSnow.
A Recreation Passport is needed for any vehicle entering a Michigan state park or recreation area.
