Trinity Health Seaway Run Brings Out Sunshine and Smiles for More Than Four Decades

The Trinity Health Seaway Run once again brought out thousands of runners and walkers of all ages. The 41st annual event — a Muskegon summer tradition — took place on a sunny Saturday, June 25, 2022.

Trinity Health was the Title Sponsor of the event, and many Trinity Health colleagues, and their families participated in the variety of races — which included a half marathon, 10K, 5K, and community fun walk.

“This event is a long-standing tradition that we have on our calendars each year,” said Trinity Health Muskegon president Gary Allore. “It’s an opportunity to show off our beautiful city and the lakeshore — and we are proud to not only be a sponsor but have many of our Trinity Health colleagues and their families participate.”

Trinity Health — formerly Mercy Health — rebranded in April 2022. The new purple and green Trinity Health colors were seen as colleagues participating in the races were wearing their T-shirts.  

Kristen Woods, MD, president of Trinity Health Medical Group, encouraged participants to wave and cheer for their fellow runners and walkers — and to also thank a health care hero.

“Please stop and take a moment to thank these Trinity Health colleagues for their hard work and selfless, constant care that they not only give each day — but especially over the last two years,” said Woods. “Join me in a round of applause now for our health care heroes – we can never say ‘thank you’ enough.”

The Seaway Run was held virtually in 2020 due to COVID-19, and finally got back to racing in 2021 and 2022.

The Trinity Health Seaway Run is a partnership between the Muskegon YMCA and Muskegon Rotary Club’s Healthy Muskegon County initiative; proceeds from the event help support these groups in their efforts to make Muskegon County a healthy place to live, learn, work and play.
