Sparrow pediatric Patients get their color on at #happiest5k

Published: July 14, 2014

When more than 9,000 people took to the streets on Saturday, July 12, for The Color Run, Stephen Guertin, M.D., and Kelleigh Gustafson were there to kick things off at the start line. The Sparrow Children's Center and Kelleigh's Cause were beneficiaries of the race in Lansing.

A group of Sparrow Children’s Center Patients and their families received VIP treatment, got to go on stage to lead color throws and met Ryan Beatty and Action Item backstage before the free afternoon matinee, sponsored by Sparrow.

Thank you to everyone who came out to participate in The Color Run or stopped by to enjoy the concert. Your participation goes right back into the community, helping our Sparrow Children's Center kids. Check out some more great photos from the day!

The first hospital in mid-Michigan to offer a dedicated children's unit, Sparrow today is home to the region's only full-service pediatric emergency department.
