Wertz Warriors 2018 July Fun Run for Michigan Special Olympics on Lake St. Clair


Wertz Warriors 19th annual FUN RUN was held recently with a record turnout.  Over 60 boats carrying 340 passengers raised over $30,000 for Michigan Special Olympics on a picture perfect Lake St. Clair day.

Many thanks to the Wertz Warrior’s organizers who planned a great Fun Run starting from Lake St. Clair Metropark, to Detroit, St. Clair Shores, Harsens Island then ending at the North Channel Yacht Club.

Photos below (in no particular order) of many participants and a few other interesting sites that day….

The Boblo boat …. “SS Ste. Claire” that burned down July 6 moored on the Detroit River

BAD timing – A large group of kayaks were just entering the Detroit River as our 60+ boats were heading out of Detroit.

Quite a variety of boat sizes for the event

In the distance looking at the shipping channel, the Tall Ship “Denis Sullivan” was passing through, returning to its home port of Milwaukee.

Winning poker hand for the Wertz Warrior Fun Run July 2018?
