MARQUETTE, Mich. (WZMQ) – The annual Great Lakes Recovery Center’s annual run for recovery looked a little different this year.
Due to weather, the run had to move inside and thanks to Northern Michigan University, runners were able to use the Superior Dome. Dozens of people participated today. The event raises money and awareness for both mental illness and addiction.
Money raised is put towards the GLRC’s Compassionate Care Fund.
“Whether they are underinsured, or don’t have any insurance, or just not able to pay for services in any way, this fund is what GLRC puts towards people so they are able to pay for services,” remarked Nate Conroy, the Marketing Associate for the GLRC.
There was also a run-for-recovery held in Sault Ste Marie, though the one scheduled for L’anse today was canceled. The GLRC hosts events throughout the year, information on how to participate or help out can be found here.
