Get ready to do the SiSu Shuffle on April 28

(Events) Permanent link
HANCOCK – It’s time to run, hop, jog, scoot, shuffle, walk or trot as the SiSu Shuffle is coming up quick. The 5-kilometer non-competitive race is scheduled for Saturday, April 28 at 11 a.m., and is once again free to participants of all ages at the Houghton County Fairgrounds.

“This is a great event for the entire family to spend time being active together,” said Angela Luskin, community health coordinator at Portage Health. “We’ll do a course at the fairgrounds, and then get together to hand out some great prizes.”

The annual event marks the end of Portage Health’s Stepen series, which is a nutrition- and exercise-based program in six area elementary schools. All Stepen students are invited, and one student from each school will receive a free bike.

“We hope to see all of our Stepen students, as well as anyone else from the community,” Luskin said.
