Statue Honoring Bobby Crim Unveiled [Video]

A statue honoring the founder of the race that has grown into a monumental event in Flint was unveiled on Thursday night. According to WNEM, Bobby Crim said of the statue unveiling that he “never expected something exactly like this. I’m humbled beyond words.” Thirty-eight years ago Crim had the idea to encourage community involvement and promote healthy living with a 10-mile race. The event has now turned into a crown jewel for Flint. A study from U of M – Flint found the Crim brings nearly 60,000 spectators, racers and volunteers into the city with an economic impact of $10 million. This year’s Crim races begin on Friday night at 7 p.m. with the big day beginning early Saturday morning.
