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.

Hooping for a Cure

Another successful Hooping Event! The 16th Hooping for Cure was held February 20, 2024 at LaSalle High School and featured the Boys & Girls Basketball teams from St. Ignace and Engadine. Close to $36,000 was raised for the No Cancer Patient Left Behind Program which helps our local oncology patients at Mackinac Straits Health System. Since 2009, Hooping has raised over $366,000! Thanks to all those who supported this year’s event. We are so grateful to all our sponsors, donors, volunteers and players who made it possible.

Jewel at Mackinac Golf Outing

Thanks to all of those who helped support our 21st Jewel at Mackinac Golf Outing in 2023. We are amazed at the dedication of our participants, sponsors, hosts and volunteers. We are so fortunate to have such wonderful support from the Mackinac Island community and all of our guests. We couldn’t have made it without Grand Hotel, Wawashkamo, Carriage Tours, Shepler’s and Mackinac Island Ferry. Proceeds help the Mackinac Straits Health Foundation support the Mackinac Straits Health System, including the Mackinac Island Medical Center. SAVE THE DATE for the 22nd Jewel, August 22, 2024!
