Manistee Woman Celebrates Birthday By Walking 150 Miles To Help Pregnant Women

A Northern Michigan woman is celebrating her birthday a little differently than most.

She’s walking 150 miles to help pregnant women in our area.

Myra Lautner is the director of the Lighthouse Pregnancy Care Center in Manistee.

She is celebrating her 60th birthday by walking and biking to pregnancy centers throughout Northern Michigan.

Her journey began in Gaylord Monday morning.

She will stop at four pregnancy centers before arriving in Manistee on Friday, her birthday.

All the money goes toward paying off the land contract for the Lighthouse Pregnancy Care Center.

“It will feel really good, because I know that everything that has been done, that I have done, everyone has been in support of and that money will go to a worthy cause. Throughout their pregnancy we help with diapers, formula. We give emotional and spiritual support with them,” says Myra.

Her goal is to raise $60,000 in donations.
