“Caroline – very well done! I found myself continuing to reflect on all the history & diversity that has contributed to the development of our great city, and helped me better understand the value diversity has played. Most importantly, I liked how this run through history helps us better understand that we stand in a place and time, where we all have the opportunity to better harness diversity as we continue to write our history. Also nothing like experiencing it on foot like the good ole days! Thanks again!”

Caroline! You and your tour were amazing! Great history, great circuit of our city, but best of all: I loved your infectious enthusiasm. You clearly love history and the City and what you do. You rocked the evening. Thank you, thank you! Thoroughly enjoyable (and aerobic to boot!).”

“I joined an enthusiastic group on the Cultural Diversity maiden running tour. It was a fun-filled romp through Grand Rapids’s ethnic and cultural history. We learned about the original peoples (Hopewell Indians), then the Three Fires Tribes, followed by various European settlers. We also visited downtown religious centers (Catholic, Protestant, Jewish), and even learned about the LGBT community outside one of the area’s prominent gay bars. Really well done, Caroline! I encourage visitors and locals alike to check out these well thought-out tours.”
