27 Year Old Runs Around Lake Michigan (1100+ Miles) Honoring Grandmother


Lee Thornquist is on a BIG adventure around Lake Michigan, taking the loop from Chicago up and around. You're probably thinking...ok, cool. I've driven around that thing a million times. The difference is he's doing it ON FOOT.

Why would someone run more than 1,100 miles during March?! Lee's on a mission to not only challenge himself but raise awareness for Alzheimers and honor his late grandmother, who lost her battle after 13 years this past September.

So, within 36 days, he is running around Lake Michigan. As of right now, he's gone through Door County and is in Marinette. Want to follow his journey or donate to the cause? Click here!
