About This Activity

Come for the race and stay for the parade! Join us on a flat course in the small farming community of Petersburg, Michigan! Our annual Community Day will kick off with The Rose Run. We're raising money in the name of Rose Marie Hunt, a Petersburg native who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2009. Proceeds from this event will be donated to The University of Michigan Cancer Care Center in Research and Patient Services. We will also support The Volunteer Fire Department in Petersburg.
