The River Valley Bank Hope Starts Here Challenge raises funds and awareness for the Upper Michigan Brain Tumor Center (UMBTC), a collaborative effort between UP Health System, Northern Michigan University and the Superior Health Foundation. Its mission is to empower patients and families dealing with brain tumor through advocacy, research, education and treatment.

There are going to be several different events for people to take part in, including a half-marathon, duathlon (run, bike, run), 10 & 5K runs, and a leisure walk. After participants get done with their events, an excellent lunch will be provided thanks to Subway! The best part is, all the proceeds go toward helping the UMBTC research cures for brain tumors.
