Six local guys ran their hearts out at the Rhoades McKee Reeds Lake Triathalon Saturday. Led by team captain, Joe Brennan, the team raised awareness for the Help Fight Scleroderma Foundation. Joe’s mother, Mary Catherine Brennan, sadly lost her battle with Scleroderma in June of 2009. She struggled with the disease for 6 years. The foundation was created as a means to raise awareness of Scleroderma in West Michigan in the hopes of finding better treatments, more answers, and ultimately a cure for the disease. HFS also holds an annual 5K race to raise money for the foundation. This year’s event, The Greatest 5K Ever, is Saturday, October 3 at 10:00am at Riverside Park in Grand Rapids. Proceeds from the race goes to research being done at the University of Michigan specifically for Scleroderma.
