ALS Association Michigan Chapter

Nana's Run

Nana's Run was created by Daniel and Pamella DeVos' daughters, Cassandra and Sydney, as a tribute to their beloved maternal grandmother, Char VanderLaan, affectionately called Nana. Nana VanderLaan passed away March 7, 2014 after battling Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). In her honor, Nana's Run will be held Saturday, May 31, 2014 in downtown Grand Rapids, MI. The special 5k race is being hosted by the ALS Association Michigan Chapter, in partnership with the Daniel & Pamella DeVos Foundation. Proceeds of the race will go toward the development of a nationally approved ALS clinic at the Mercy Health Hauenstein Neuroscience Center in Grand Rapids and to fund the ALS Association Michigan Chapter. Walkers and runners of all abilities are welcome. For more information or to register or donate, please click on the link below.
