BENEFITING: FOUNDATION FOR SARCOIDOSIS RESEARCH

EVENT: Paddle Relay Around Lower Michigan

EVENT DATE: Jul 12, 2015

Steve and Greg

THE STORY:

The Charity

Sarcoidosis (pronounced SAR-COY-DOE-SIS) is an inflammatory disease that can affect almost any organ in the body. It causes heightened immunity, which means that a person’s immune system, which normally protects the body from infection and disease, overreacts, resulting in damage to the body’s own tissues.

The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research began in 1999 as a grassroots organization, and now has expanded their efforts and impact to become the leader in supporting sarcoidosis research. Started by co-founders with a dedication to making a difference, FSR continues to advance research and provide information to thousands. 

The Segment

Starting from the beach park in Charlevoix the trip north to the Great Bridge will undoubtedly be one of the most picturesque segments of the Paddle Relay. With a little luck we’ll have a nice west wind to push us down Little Traverse Bay and into Petoskey State Park.  From there we’ll turn west and head out to the quaint town of Harbor Springs and the Harbor Point Lighthouse, before heading north toward Sturgeon Bay. Sturgeon Bay’s beauty will give way to the rugged wilderness state parks Waugoshance Point. Once we turn east the Mackinaw Bridge will guide us to our final destination, finishing in Mackinaw City.
