About Niles Burn Run  

Founded in 2001 and based in Niles, Michigan, the Niles Burn Run is a 501 C 3 charity run by volunteers with  the mission of helping to fund the Great Lakes Burn Camp. All money raised at the event goes directly to the Great Lakes Burn Camp, which hosts summer and winter sleep-away camps for kids who have sustained burn injuries. Because of groups like the Niles Burn Run, children can attend this camp for free at no cost to their  families.
