Third annual Neogen 5K breaks previous records

The numbers are in — the third annual Neogen 5K, which took place May 11 in Lansing, Michigan and raises money for the Herbert-Herman Cancer Center, has smashed previous fundraising records out of the water.

Together with 5K participants and community partners, we’re able to donate $27,000 this year to the Sparrow Foundation, which collects the funds to benefit the cancer center. This means that all-in-all, we’ve given nearly $70,000 to the center in the past three years through the 5K. What an accomplishment!

The yearly event is a walk/run taking place near Neogen’s Lansing headquarters. While some participants opt to test their mettle and race, many others in the community join together to walk for a good cause.

This year, nearly 200 walkers and runners participated from across Michigan. Our top race finisher was Griffin Bohannon, who clocked a time of 14:53, beating his time last year of 15:34 (yes, he won the race last year as well!).

We’d like to extend an enormous thank you to everyone who made this donation possible. Their time, energy and contributions will support an invaluable resource that saves lives, and we cannot be more honored that this race has soared to such heights.

We already look forward to what next year’s event will bring.
