Stand Up For Great Lakes Present $15K Check at S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald Memorial Ceremony

The crew from Stand Up for Great Lakes presented a $15,000 check to the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society during the annual memorial ceremony of the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald.

The S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald sank in Lake Superior on November 10, 1975, just 14 miles from Whitefish Point.

According to their Facebook page, the money was raised during this summer’s paddle-board crossing of Lake Superior, which was shown live on Michigan This Morning.

They also presented the Historical Society with a log they picked up in the middle of the lake during the paddle.

They had it carved and painted.
