The 9th Annual Whitefish Point: Run for the Light
10k Run and 5k Run/Fun Walk Big Success!
The 9th Annual Whitefish Point: Run for Light was a big success, with chilly temperatures, light rain and over 100 participants! Despite the cool temperatures, everybody appeared to enjoy themselves and while doing so, raised important funds to help preserve our 1861 Whitefish Point Lighthouse. This light has been guiding ship traffic since Abraham Lincoln was President of the United States, and still operates today…making it the oldest operating lighthouse on Lake Superior. We would like to thank all of you who participated, all of our volunteers and our sponsors for making this race possible. You are helping to preserve the history that makes Whitefish Point such an important place. Thanks again!
