Educational and Fundraising Events for the Community

MSHS has some key events each year that raise money, educate, or bring attention to a community need.

Hooping for a Cure – 2021!

It’s the 13th Annual Hooping For A Cure! Proceeds from this fundraiser help the Mackinac Straits Health Foundation support the “No Cancer Patient Left Behind” program. Thanks to all those who have supported this year’s effort. Pictured above, Caleb Salo of Rudyard (center) won the 50/50 Raffle worth $1,910! He graciously donated a portion of it back. Also pictured with Caleb are Hooping committee volunteer, Kharizma Labinsky (left), and MSH Foundation Director, Mike Grisdale (right). Thanks to all those who supported this year’s effort. Over $25,000 was raised to help our local oncology patients. Donations are still being accepted. Click on the Donate button at the top of the page, or call (906) 328-0006.
