Remembering, running for Denise Marth

DENISE MARTH MEMORIAL RUN–The Denise Marth Memorial Fun Run is held once again on May 11, 2024, in memory of a community member who advocated for health and wellness. Her memory is alive and well in L’Anse as this year is the 18th annual event in her honor.

With a rainy start to the morning, the Denise Marth Fun Run had a dreary outlook this year, and organizers were worried no one would show up. Of course, though, there are members of the community that make a show no matter the weather conditions, because some  things are more important than a bit of discomfort. What is exercise after all if not a bit
of discomfort for the sake of body and wellness. The Denise Marth Memorial Fun Run was
held on Saturday, May 11, at the L’Anse Waterfront Park from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Denise Marth would no doubt be proud of everyone who attended this year if she were still here. In her memory, runners, cyclists, roller skaters, and all manner of exercise enthusiasts
owned the day and conquered the weather for Denise and for themselves. Making the trek along the bay shore, participants were rewarded with snacks, drinks, water bottles and prizes. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
