On June 10, 2011, the Robotic Systems Joint Project Office at Selfridge Air National Guard Base held their third annual Robot Trot. Over 100 runners competed in the 5K race. Several runners also competed in a 10-mile race to qualify for the Army 10-Miler, which will be held in Washington D.C. later this year. Proceeds from the event went to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. 

Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Michigan, is a joint DoD and DHS installation with the 127th Wing, Michigan Air National Guard, as the host unit. The 127th Wing's mission is to provide trained, equipped and motivated tanker, fighter and support resources for the community, state and nation. The 127th Wing supports three separate Major Commands (ACC, AMC and AFSOC), flying two distinctly different missions in the KC-135 and the A-10.

Selfridge's 127th Wing is host to more than 40 tenant units representing every branch of the military - active duty, Reserves and National Guard, Coast Guard, Border Patrol and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Team Selfridge is a community of separate units with syngergistic goals and missions supporting training the warfighter and homeland defense activities
