Official Website


Join us on January 9, 2022 for Mark the Barber's 5K Run/Walk and 1 mile Run/Walk. The event will be run through the streets of Sandusky and finish on the Diamond Trail. Packet pick up and awards ceremony will take place inside Maple Valley Elementary School, 138 Maple Valley St. (In the event of any Covid-19 restrictions, we will use the pavilion at the Diamond Trail for all race activities).

All participants will receive a Long Sleeve Tech shirt and finisher medal. Age group awards will also be given out after 5k race. This is a fundraiser sponsored by Right to Life of Sanilac County to raise funds for Spero Pregnancy Center in Port Huron, MI.

This year Mark chose to raise funds for Spero because he felt that giving may be down due to the current situation of our country and this is a time when the Pregnancy Center needs the most help. Please help support our friends at the Spero Pregnancy Center by donating today!
