Northern Credit Union is bringing fun and smiles to the 23rd Annual Run the Great Lakes


Northern Credit Union is partnering with The Shoe Fits to bring fun and smiles to the 23rd Annual Run the Great Lakes fundraiser run

The biggest annual running event in town, Run the Great Lakes, is making a grand in-person return to the Sault Ste. Marie community after two years of being virtual.

On Sunday, June 5th , adults and children will run between 1k and 10k in support of ARCH Hospice and the Sault Area Hospital Foundation. Northern Credit Union is teaming up with The Shoe Fits to sponsor the 1k and 2k children’s runs, where children of all ages are welcome to participate.

Registration is $20.00 per child, and $45.00 per adult, with 100% of the registration fees donated to charity. Register your child before Thursday, May 26th and they will receive a free t-shirt on run day!

Northern is doubling down on the fun by setting up games and activities for families to enjoy after the race. Join us in the Delta Hotel parking lot on St. Mary’s River drive, to cool off in the Kiddie Car Wash, decorate the parking lot with sidewalk chalk, challenge your kids to a game of bean bag toss, and enjoy the free swag giveaways and prize draws, all while supporting two great causes!

All registrants will be automatically entered into the draw for prizes valued up to $500.00, so be sure to stick around after the run in order to claim any prizes!

The past two years have shown the importance of supporting local health, so help to make the 23rd Annual Run the Great Lakes one for the books by signing up today! For more event details and registration, visit
