This is the 17th Annual Simsonian 5K Kick-Off Classic, held in memory of beloved teacher and coach, Steve Sims, who died unexpectedly in 2003 of a ruptured aortic aneurysm.  All proceeds of the race go to a scholarship awarded to an outsttanding female scholar/athlete at Grosse Ile High School.

The course is fast and flat on beautiful Grosse Ile.  Awards are in 11 age categories, three deep.  Commemorative T-Shirt, DJ, After Race Party.  A great time for an even greater cause.
