We are pleased to announce the 2012 Bay View Fox Run! Please join us at South Shore Park in Milwaukee on Saturday, June 2nd, 2012 for a beautiful run/walk along Lake Michigan. This year, we have a professionally chip timed 10K in addition to our 5K. We are excited to announce that our emcee this year for the event will be state Senator, Chris Larson. A fellow Bay View resident, avid runner, and supporter of the mission of the Healing Center, Senator Larson is excited to be apart of this event. Last year we had an incredible event with over 400 participants. Find us on Facebook as "The Healing Center Hosts the Bay View Fox Run" and "like" us!
