On Wednesday September 14th the Gerrish Township Police Department once again hosted the annual Torch Run. This year the run route was moved and the 5K run started at the Gerrish Township Police Department and ended at the South Higgins Lake State Park. This event helps raise funds for the Special Olympics of Michigan. This year’s event was attended by 64 runners to include local law enforcement, Houghton Lake Cross Country Team, Kirtland Regional Police Academy, employees of the Michigan DNR, Department of Human Services and other community members. A thank you to all who participated and we look forward to next year.
