The Gerrish Township Community Run for the 2018 Law Enforcement Torch Run was held on September 11, 2018.  The run started at the Gerrish Twp. Municipal Center and ended at the South Higgins Lake State Park Boat Basin area (at the picnic pavilion).  Runners and bikers were provided water, hot dogs and chips compliments of Family Fare of Roscommon.

$1150 was raised from the event which supports Special Olympics of Michigan and half of the funds we raise support our local Special Olympic Athletes!

Thank you to all of the participants including the Houghton Lake Cross Country Team, DNR State Park employees, Sheriff Ed Stern and the Kirtland Community College Regional Police Academy Cadets, the Gerrish CERT team, Gerrish Police Officers and event coordinator Officer Shannon Fick.
