The Lace Up 4 Marsha Walk-a-thon is a fundraiser for Marsha Thake who requires a living donor liver transplant. Marsha grew up in Westport and her family and friends are asking for your help to raise money that will support Martha and her donor through the transplant process. Not all parts of the transplant process are covered by O.H.I.P. and Martha needs your help and support in this time of need.
Lace Up 4 Marsha is a walk/run/bike event for teams or individuals. It starts at the Westport Legion and heads into the Village via Hwy 42. The entire course is a 4 mile block around the Village of Westport. Afterward participants return to the Legion for a barbeque and entertainment. This is a family oriented event, so sign your family and friends up today.
The entrance fee is $15 per person. If teams and individuals choose to collect pledges they can. For those who raise $100 or more the entrance fee is waved. You can download all the forms from the Lace Up 4 Marsha website.
