The Mt. Lake Area cross country program will be holding a special event on Aug. 27 to coincide with the team’s annual 12-hour run at Lawcon Park and the Mountain Lake trail.
This year, the Wolverine team will hold a special “Running Down Cancer” event. Runners on the team are collecting pledges for each mile they run during the day.
All funds raised from the event are being donated to the Ronald McDonald House to be used for housing for families with members undergoing cancer treatments.
The event is being held in honor of Wolverine cross country team member Luke Klassen, who is currently undergoing cancer treatment.
To donate, contact any Wolverine cross country team member. All sponsors will have their names entered into a drawing for a team T-shirt.
