Mackinac Straits Health Systems
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.
Jewel at Mackinac Update
Even though our Golf Outing on Mackinac Island was canceled for this year, we appreciate the continued support for the Mackinac Straits Health Foundation. Not only is the Jewel one of our biggest fundraisers of the year, but it is always a wonderful reunion of all our supporters and partners that make us a successful organization. Many of our golf sponsors and players have made donations even though we are not having the event! Again, thank you for all the support for our Health System, including the Medical Center. We look forward to bringing the Jewel back to Mackinac Island in 2021! For more information on making a tax-deductible gift, call (906) 643-0443.
St. Ignace Rock & Run
The 2020 St. Ignace Rock & Run was a virtual success! It happened the weekend of May 15-17, 2020. This year’s event included a 10-K run and a 5-K Run/Walk. Our presenting sponsor was Star Line Mackinac Island Ferry. There were T-shirts and medals! Thanks to everyone who participated in raising more than $10,000! We had a record 377 registrations. Proceeds helped the Mackinac Straits Health Foundation support Mackinac Straits Hospital with its response to the current pandemic! For more information, call Kim North, (906) 328-0006.
Hooping for a Cure!
The 12th Annual Hooping For A Cure was a huge success! The annual benefit basketball game on February 13, 2020 featured the St. Ignace Lady Saints hosting the Cedarville Trojans. Thanks to great support from both communities, we raised over $35,000! Proceeds will be used to help local cancer patients thru the “No Cancer Patient Left Behind Program” and the Mackinac Straits Health Foundation. We couldn’t do it without the wonderful support from our sponsors and donors. Thanks to all who participated and contributed. For more information, call (906) 328-0006.
