Dress Up, Run and Help Preserve Whitefish Point


There’s still time to sign up for the Whitefish Point and Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum’s annual Run for the Light 10k Run and 5k Run/Fun Walk on October 12.

Participants are encouraged to dress up for Halloween, and proceeds go to help preserve Whitefish Lighthouse, which all ships pass coming in and out of Lake Superior. Since the area is famous for shipwrecks, the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum was created and hosts fundraising events throughout the year for the lighthouse, whose tower and Lighthouse Keeper’s Quarters are maintained by the Shipwreck Society.

Registration for the 5k is $30 and the 10k is $40. To learn more and sign up, visit
