Goodwill Prepares for 6th Annual Run for Shelter Event

Runners are getting set for the 6th Annual Goodwill Run for Shelter to help the homeless in the Grand Traverse area.

The $35 registration fee covers the cost of a one night stay at the Goodwill Inn.

The money will also go towards three meals and other goods.

If you want to sign up, you still have time. You can register at the event Saturday morning from 8:00 to 8:45 a.m.

This weekend’s race is important for the inn to continue to serve the homeless.

“The Inn is one of our neediest programs so any extra funds we can get is greatly needed. This is a fun way to raise awareness and extra funds and it goes directly to the guests there and whatever needs that need to be covered,” said Lilly Nowicki, Goodwill Event and Database Manager.

You don’t have to run the entire race, you can walk your pet or push a stroller for it.

200 people have already signed up. Goodwill officials are hoping for at least 50 more for Saturday’s race.
