Run with Nuns: Franciscan Rhythms 5k

5K Benefits Franciscan Nun's Music Therapy

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - They're known for their ability to bring peace and calm, making the impossible seem possible and their great taste in running shoes!

Franciscan nuns Sister Colleen Ann Nagle and Sister Mary Margaret Delaski talk with Health Reporter Valerie Lego about their upcoming fundraiser the Franciscan Rhythms 5k Trail Run. Watch the full interview in the video above.

The Franciscan Life Process Center's music therapy program has been serving West Michigan since 1978, before music therapy was a widely recognized therapy method.

"In those 38 years, we've expanded to serve people young and old at schools, hospitals, retirement communities and hospice facilities," explained Sister Colleen Ann Nagle. "We serve people in all stages of life and we believe music therapy should be available to all who need it."

After the race, there will be a hearty meal of homemade stew and fresh baked bread plus a photo booth, a raffle and more.

New this year, there will be a 1k race for children ages 3-11.

The second annual Franciscan Rhythms 5k Trail Run/Walk takes place Saturday, Oct. 1 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Franciscan Life Process Center at 11650 Downes Street in Lowell.
