The event will start and finish at the Great Lakes Recovery Center’s Adult Residential Services facility located at 241 Wright Street in Marquette. There will be light refreshments and door prizes at the event.

They also offer Offender Success Programming, Neuro-Developmental Trauma Assessments, prevention services, peer recovery coaching, and more.
