We Crossed The Straits!
A group of Cherryland Middle School 8th grade students, along with SUFGL,
successfully crossed the Mackinaw Straits, April 22nd.
The paddle took us just under two hours.
Gordie Lafontaine and Kadin Patterson were the students and raised just over four thousand dollars!
With currents exceeding Niagra Falls and water temps below 40 degrees, training and gear was vital.
We had PFD’s, Drysuits, Leashes, two support boats and medical staff.
