The first Race to College event was held at Delta College on October 9, 2015. Over 100 fifth grade students from Jessie Loomis Elementary School in Saginaw and Washington Elementary School in Bay City participated in this college access day.
Delta College faculty, staff, and students partnered with members of the Michigan State Police as well as Field Neurosciences Institute to teach students about the importance of health and wellness by using the bicycle as the main tool. There were a total of eight academic and physical activity stations that the kids rotated through which taught them about business, art, civic leadership, STEM, lifelong wellness, safety, and more.
