MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Back to back events are lined up over the weekend to get everybody excited for the Kraft Hockeyville USA game at Lakeview Arena.
To kick the weekend off, there is a 5K Run/Walk beginning at 9 outside of Lakeview ArenaSaturday morning where all proceeds will go to the building. Following the 5K, is a one mile youth run and a post-race celebration with music, food, and raffles. However, if you are not able to attend the event, you still have the opportunity to take part in a virtual race.
"Two weeks after the race, a medal will show up in the mail” said Race Director, Mark Janofski. "You'll be commemorative that you donated to Lakeview. Basically what you have to do is go and run or walk a 5K of your choice. There will be a website where you can post a picture after you do your run and then like I said, you'll get a medal in the mail showing that you did the race."
The evening ends at the Marquette Commons with the Hockeyville Red Carpet Gala. Tickets are still available for purchase and if interested click here.
