Join your Grand Rapids Running Tours guide for a FREE walking tour about the many bronze statues of GR's most notable contributors!
The Grand Rapids Community Legends Project was established by local philanthropist and businessman, Peter Secchia and his family, in 2008 with the intent of keeping local history alive. They made a pledge to provide #DowntownGR with a selection of no less than 25 bronze tributes of Grand Rapids’ most notable contributors. 13 years later, there are 12 bronze sculptures placed throughout the urban core that have been gifted by the Project.
In the words of Peter Secchia, “How will you know who you can be if you do not know who you have been?” Discover who, what, and where on this blended tour of statue art and local history.
All tours meet at Rosa Parks Circle. No registration needed. First come, first serve. Please bring your masks
