'Run for a Reason' with us at Back Channel Brewing Co on Sunday, April 30 - a 5k to support Grief Club MN

We've mapped out a 5k-ish course to start and end at this awesome taproom in 'Westonka', MN. Run, walk, jog - whatever goes! All ages, all levels are welcome. Complete the course and celebrate with us - enjoy a FREE, local craft brew at the finish line.

Be active. Have fun. Give back! A portion of all proceeds supports Grief Club of Minnesota - a 501c3 community based nonprofit whose mission is to provide a place where grieving children, teens and families find connections, share their experiences and heal. The organization offers a safe haven of support, compassion, education and hope, providing peer based support groups, individual and family grief counseling sessions and crisis support and education to the community. All clinical services are provided by professional licensed mental health counselors and at no cost to the participants.

What’s included?! All participants receive:

  • A craft brew from Back Channel Brewing Co
  • Choice of a collector’s pint glass or seasonal swag item from the Brewery Running Series
  • A chance to win sweet door prizes, like Brewery Running Series merchandise or a growler to take home
  • Access to family friendly event festivities like live music + games, goodies and a chance to win giveaways from our partners and sponsors
  • Enjoy the day! Get food from these trucks onsite: Parlour - MN's most famous burger, Localz Cafe - tacos / breakfast tacos and Adventure Bowls - Superfood fruit smoothie bowls
  • And more!
