Coaches

We are fortunate to have access to the expertise of coaches with years of experience in exercise physiology, therapy and medicine. They are volunteers and unable to provide personal “medical care” in the Run Camp setting, but each knows the appropriate boundaries for this setting and will provide as much helpful information as is practicable under the circumstances. You may meet with our Camp coaches individually or ask questions through your Team Leader.

Borgess Orthopedics, with Dr. Tom Goodwin and Dr. Mary Vajgrt, is open Monday—Friday from 8am – 5pm for individualized diagnosis and care. For appointments within 48 hours, contact (269) 343-1535. Please visit www.bonejoint.borgess.com.
