ALPENA — Brendan and Leah Conboy and family have been chosen as the Honorary Race Chairs for the Alpena Development Council’s 20th Annual Aliferis Memorial Race.

The Conboys have participated in the race for many years and have always been active. Brendan and Leah have participated as far back as 2012. Daughters Penelope and Charlotte have joined in in recent years.

“As physicians, but more importantly as parents, we recognize the importance of physical activity and healthy living for our families and our community. We strive to lead by example and hope to instill a tradition of fitness in our children and inspire our patients to make healthy living a priority,” Brendan and Leah Conboy said. “Whether we are hiking, biking, running or kayaking, we have found that exercise is a great way to spend quality time as a family.”

The 20th Annual Aliferis Race is scheduled to take place Saturday, Sept. 4. Race headquarters and registration will be located under the tent on the corner of Chisholm Street (US-23) and Johnson Street on the campus of MidMichigan Medical Center – Alpena.

Events this year are a half-marathon, an 18.5 mile bike race, a 6.5 mile bike tour, a 5K run and the family-friendly 1-mile run/walk.
