Recognizing the race directors, volunteers, endurance sports clubs, sponsors, individuals with disabilities, and event participants that set out to accomplish their goals...no matter how long it takes or how far they have to go.
A.I.M. High awards focus not on the event winners, but on the people who have made the commitments and sacrifices to challenge themselves and do something most people will never even try.
Participation in West Michigan Endurance activities is booming
and record numbers of dollars are being raised for local charities
Through our involvement as a charity partner for the Metro
Health Grand Rapids Marathon, the Wheel Run Together
5k & 10k, the MiTitanium, and the Hurt the Dirt Trail Races,
we hope to maintain long lasting partnerships with
endurance activites that promote healthy lifestyles
while generating a significant amount of fundraising
dollars at the same time.
Join us in celebrating the accomplishments of the West Michigan Endurance community by purchasing a ticket to the A.I.M. High Endurance Awards.
Proceeds from this event go directly to Alternatives in Motion
