St. Ignace Rock & Run
The 2019 St. Ignace Rock & Run was a success! The half-marathon and 5-k took place on May 18, 2019. Even though it was chilly morning, we had 175 register with dozens of volunteers and musicians helping out along the route. Thanks to the number of entries and our great sponsors, we raised close to $6,000 for the Mackinac Straits Health Foundation!
Hooping for a Cure!
The 11th Annual Hooping For A Cure was a huge success! The annual benefit basketball game was held, January 24, 2019 at LaSalle High School with the St. Ignace Lady Saints hosting the Cedarville Trojans. We raised a record $24,000 that night and are proud to say that this event has now raised over $180,000 in the last 11 years! 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 have done it without the wonderful support from our communities. Thanks to all who participated and contributed.
