The Simsonian Run is in memory of 25 year teacher and coach Steve Sims who died suddenly in 2003 of an aortic aneurysm.  Sims was an avid runner who coached Girls Varsity Basketball and Track and Field at Grosse Ile High School in Grosse Ile, Michigan.  All proceeds from the Simsonian Run go to fund the $2000.00 Leadership Award that Sims' family established in his name at Grosse Ile High School.  The Run begins and ends at Grosse Ile High School (downriver Detroit), on the lovely, quiet island of Grosse Ile.  Much of the Run is along the Detroit River overlooking Canada.  Besides the great view, we have great door prizes, lots of fun, and registered runners also get a one-of-a kind, limited edition, collectable Simsonian Run t-shirt!  We hope you'll join us this August for one of the best 5k runs around!  And don't forget the 1 mile fun walk/run before the 5k!  Fun and healthy for the entire family!  :)
