​The HealthPlus Brooksie Way is one of Oakland County’s premier ​quality of life events. County Executive L. Brooks Patterson began the Brooksie Way races to promote Oakland County and encourage people to become more physically active.

Race proceeds support programs that encourage healthy and active lifestyle and are distributed through Brooksie Way MiniGrants​. In little more than a year, Brooksie Way Minigrants have put more than $125,000 back into Oakland County communities, touching thousands of lives along the way.

Participating in one of the many Brooksie Way activities or races, such as the HealthPlus Brooksie Way Half Marathon, the Brooksie Way 5K or Fun Run, is fulfilling for all ages. Whether you run, jog or walk, the journey to crossing the finish line can be a life changing one. And if running isn't for you, volunteers are always needed to keep the events running smoothly.
