Residents flocked to the Village of Grosse Pointe Shores May 6th, 2012 Arbor Day Observance to participate in the Fun Run and partake in refreshments provided by the Grosse Pointe Shores Improvement Foundation.
Racers picked up their race shirts in Osius Municipal Park Pavillion where water and snacks were available. President Susan Walton and Rob Squiers were available to answer questions about joining the Foundation.
This year the event accommodated walkers, runners and in-line skaters. There were even a few tots in strollers.
The course started with a 3 mile round trip up Lake Shore Road to the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House and back. Racers could then continue an additional 6 miles on an extended lakefront course.
