    Marquette – (Great Lakes Radio News) – On the July 7th Sunny Morning Show with Walt & Mike, Mike was spoke with Jayne Letts, Executive Director of the Marquette & Alger County Big Brothers Big Sisters about their upcoming plans for the Negaunee Pioneer Days.

    Jayne talked about the upcoming 33rd annual Negaunee Pioneer Days Fun Run, taking place on July 11th! Both races start in Old Town Negaunee, and the 10 mile course makes its way to Ishpeming and back, while the two mile course heads toward Marquette before turning around. Anyone can run or walk and day-of registration will be open, and both races start at 8:30am. Online registration is available at or call their office at 1-906-475-7801. Top three finishers get medals, and the races will be started by Brittany Cappoferrri (Miss Upper Peninsula)!

    A special thanks goes out to the Negaunee Pioneer Days Big Brothers Big Sisters Fun Run; Range Bank, UPHP, Cliffs, Mark Aho Financial, Kohls, and Ojibwa Casino! None of this would be possible without their help, and we hope to see you Saturday morning!
