Virtual Steve’s Run

Saturday, July 25-Saturday, August 1


Join us in the fight against cancer!


In the last 15 years alone, Steve’s Run has raised over $180,000 for cancer research and student scholarships (split evenly).


This year, to continue the tradition while also protecting the health and safety of all in the midst of the coronavirus, the 46th Steve’s Run is going virtual. Participants can run or walk their favorite 5K or 10K route and then share their results with us online (full instructions below). Winners will be celebrated on Facebook.


We hope you’ll join us to raise money for these important causes.


 


About Steve’s Run

Steve’s Run is named in honor of Steven Briegel, the son of former Southwestern Michigan College president David Briegel. Steve died in 1990 at the age of 22 after a five-and-a-half-year battle with cancer. He was a 1986 graduate of Dowagiac Union High School and had played basketball, golf and in the band for the Chieftains. He graduated with honors from SMC and was a junior in the Ferris at SMC program at the time of his death.


After Steve’s passing, SMC’s annual Road and Trail Race, which began in 1972, was renamed Steve’s Run and was dedicated to honor all who have fought or are still fighting cancer, with proceeds being split evenly between cancer research and the Steven Briegel Scholarship.


SMC continues to host Steve’s Run on the roads and trails surrounding the Dowagiac campus each year (this year’s virtual run being the exception). The race typically draws hundreds of runners of all ages from across the country and has raised over $120,000 in the last ten years.
