Mark your calendars for April 27th and 28th!

Katty Shack is back in Grand Haven for our 9th year!  We are excited to offer this fun, family event while remembering and honoring those affected by violent crime and raising funds for a wonderful cause.  Enjoy the beautiful views of Lake Michigan while running through quaint neighborhoods and passing by the Coast Guard along the channel.

All proceeds benefit The Crime Victim Foundation of Michigan.  Katty Shack is run in memory of four loved ones whose lives were tragically taken in September of 2008:  Katherine Brown, Jeremy, Tyler & Sharmaine Zimmer.

The event begins Friday, April 27th, at St. Patrick’s Family Center, 920 Fulton St., Grand Haven, with the “Fuel Up For Katty Shack” pasta dinner along with raffles, and music.  Late registration and packet pick-up are also available from 4:30 – 6:30 pm.  Pasta tickets are $10 for 13+ and $7 for 12 & under.
