Stroke Awareness 5k Run-Walk - In Memory of Ardith Felzke Race Description

On July 8th, 2018 our family lost a great woman, Ardith Felzke, to a stroke. She was always there to support everyone in their dreams so we started this event in 2019 to honor her and bring about awareness on the signs and symptoms of a stroke.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to the patients of OSF Rehabilitation to benefit those who have suffered the effects of a stroke.

Cost for the event is $25.00 which includes a t-shirt (please specify size). T-shirts are only guaranteed until July 1st. If you would like to be a sponsor for the event, the suggested donation is $25.00 and your business name will appear on the back of the t-shirt.

Due to COVID-19, we want to do our best at making sure all runners/walkers are staying safe. In following with the orders set forth by the Governor, this race will take place virtually unless the quarantine is lifted before the July 18th, 2020 race date. Which we hope that it will be.

Registration and packet pickup will be from 7:30 am until 8:30 am e.s.t. the day of the event. Donations will also be accepted until the cutoff time. Race will begin at 9:00 am.

Top 3 race winners will be awarded medals and top 3 race winners in each age group will be awarded ribbons. This is a timed event. Participants will be racing on the Felch Grade Trail which is a ATV/UTV trail which is a gravel and rocky path.
However, if the quarantine is still in place racers can still register online and your bibs will be mailed to you. On July 18th run/walk a 5k and submit your time results (based on the honor system) under the Contact tab on the website (located below) by the end of the day. Time results will be tallied and awards and medals will be mailed out on the 20th.

To register for the event please go to the official website at:

Please mail your payment to:
Stroke Awareness 5k Run/Walk

Escanaba, MI 49829
