RUN FOR THE LAW – A Lake Superior State University sports and events marketing class is offering the second annual Runnin' For the Law on Oct. 19 to benefit The Thin Blue Line of Michigan. Thin Blue Line provides assistance to families of ill, disabled, or deceased members of the law enforcement community, which includes firefighters, dispatchers, corrections, EMT, EMS, and administrative clerks. It also provides support in the areas of financial, legal, benefit recovery, counseling, funeral and college stipends, medical costs, medical equipment, and much more. Everyone from both sides of the St. Mary's river is invited to support the cause by running or walking a five-kilometer course at the Algonquin cross-country ski trail located on West 16th Ave., Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. Organizers are also looking for volunteers to assist with the event. Runners and volunteers can register by contacting Rechelle Wiater at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 906-322-1425. Runners can also register 8:30-9:45 a.m. on the 19th, with the race commencing at 10 a.m. The $30 registration fee includes a commemorative event shirt.
