The Hamtramck Drug Free Community Coalition (HDFCC) is seeking donations for their annual Hamtramck Health Hike on May 29. The 5K starts at the Piast Institute on Joseph Campau and runs through the city, ending near the starting point.

The monetary donations cover the t-shirts that are given to participants while they are also seeking specific donations for ice cream, an ice cream cart, a disc jockey, and a photobooth/photographer. Sterling is donating resources for the ice cream as they did in 2020. The ice cream is given to participants following their race. It was one of the highlights of last year’s event.

The Hamtramck Health Hike is the idea of a group at the HDFCC looking to educate the residents on maintaining proper health including health screening, cooking demonstrations, as well as activities to keep children engaged. Their purpose is to show the Hamtramck residents what a healthy mind, body, and soul can do for your overall well being.

The vendors that usually line the streets to offer their promotional material are being asked to submit or drop-off their items prior to the event. The HDFCC is organizing backpacks for each participant to take home with them that includes vendor items.
