My FIRST bridge run — Karen Taylor’s Story
I began living healthy June 1st, 2013. I ran my first 10K in December during a snowstorm! I didn’t have a very fast run time, but I started and I finished. That has been my goal all along.

Located in Lake Huron, in between Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas is the little gem known as Mackinac Island. Called Michilimackinac by its Native Anishinaabe inhabitants, this 3.8 square mile island, home to roughly 500 year-round residents, can see upwards of 15,000 visitors on a nice summer day. From biking to carriage-riding or snacking on fudge, this island is sure to have an activity everyone in the family will enjoy.
Michigan has a long history of walking on Labor Day. For more than five decades Michigan residents have gathered in St. Ignace for the Mackinac Bridge Labor Day Walk. However, not all Michigan residents are able to attend the Bridge Walk. The Michigan Fitness Foundation hopes to give every Michigander an opportunity to participate in this walking tradition by encouraging communities to host their own Labor Day Community Walk.
If your community is interested in hosting a Labor Day Community Walk event, please fill out the form below. Organizers of registered walks will receive free support materials to help make their Labor Day Community Walk a success.
