Border to Bridge Run 2022: Benefiting Breast Cancer Research

June 4 - June 11

Three women from the Caledonia community plan to run the length of Michigan’s lower peninsula in a first-ever Border-to-Bridge Run to raise funds supporting breast cancer research from June 4-11, 2022.

Becky Bravata, Lieschen Jacobs and Liz Burnis want to use their love of running to generate charitable donations for breast cancer research in partnership with the Van Andel Institute. The women will begin at the Michigan-Indiana border and plan to run more than 300 miles north over eight consecutive days to reach the Mackinac Bridge.

In addition to running, the women plan to make dedications to breast cancer survivors and warriors along their route. Local runners and walkers will be encouraged to join as they pass through towns. Business sponsorships will help fund Border-to-Bridge, and individuals will be able to donate online directly to the Van Andel Institute.
