For the first 6 years of this race, Veronica tried to do everything herself with the help of family members. Then she decided that for the race to grow, she would need some help. She reached out to family and friends ( and a few outsiders ) and a great committee dedicated to making this event a success was created. Here are the people who are leading the charge this year.
Kevin brings a lot of passion to the planning committee and a great sense of technology. Kevin joined the Brainy Day committee in 2013, taking over as Race Director for the 2018 race. When he’s not volunteering for Brainy Day, he works as a Media Buyer for Synergi Media in Zeeland. With Kevin’s background in marketing and his enthusiasm for running, we have been able to expand our digital reach and attract new runners to the event.
Assoc. Race Director
Kathryn joined the Brainy Day committee as part of the 2018 planning group. She is an active member of the Grand Haven Running Club and is passionate for making Brainy Day a success. Her running adventures have brought her all across the United States. When she’s not planning, she works as a Civil Engineer in Muskegon
Alana, a champion marathon runner, joined the Brainy Day team in 2014. Joining her husband Kevin on the committee, she brings a wealth of knowledge to the committee as a lifelong runner. She is also a Physical Therapist with Spectrum Health and is one of a handful of Neurological Clinical Specialists in Michigan.
