MARQUETTE COUNTY, Mich. (WLUC) - The Great Lakes Recovery Centers (GLRC) is hosting a fundraiser this week, with the option to participate virtually or in person.

For the 14th annual Run for Recovery, a virtual event is being held from Sunday, July 25 through Sunday, August 1. Participants can walk, run, or bike any distance at any location.

Three in-person walks will take place in Marquette, L’Anse, and Sault Ste. Marie on Wednesday, July 28. Each walk will begin at 6:00 p.m.

All proceeds will go to the GLRC’s four recovery houses across the U.P., which help people heal from substance abuse.

“We just want the community involved,” said GLRC Foundation coordinator Amy Poirier. “Substance abuse affects so many people, not only in our community, but the U.S. and the world. We want everybody to be able to take part in this and help support our neighbors.”

A virtual auction will also be held this week. More details will be announced on the GLRC Facebook page.

Registration for any Run for Recovery event is $25. To sign up or to make a donation, click here.
