Sandy Corley Memorial Run
The 28th Annual Sandy Corley Memorial Run will be held on Thursday, June 9–Saturday, June 11, 2016 at the Double JJ Resort in Rothbury, MI. The run began in the fall of 1989, and was held in honor of Sandy Corley, former owner of Sandy's Harley-Davidson, who passed away from cancer in 1989. Since then, it has grown into a weekend-long event featuring a poker run, bike raffle, field games, and great music. Over the past 27 years, this event has raised over $1.6 million, which has been used to support the needs of area cancer patients.
The dollars raised through this event will be used to support innovative patient programs and services, and will assist in purchasing new equipment for the Mercy Health Johnson Family Cancer Center in Muskegon — which is all aimed at providing our patients with the very best cancer care available.
For more information, visit the Run website.
Congratulations to Ruth Huff, winner of the 2015 Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider

Golfin' Fore Girls
Since 2005, Golfin' Fore Girls has raised over $48,000 in an effort to increase the resources needed to encourage women in our community to seek the education and screenings available to them in order to prevent, treat and . . . beat breast cancer. This tournament not only provides a day of friendly competition on the golf course, it also brings together women who, like many of us, have been touched by breast cancer. Some play to celebrate their survival, and others come to honor the memory of a loved one. But every woman who competes understands the importance of yearly screenings; that early detection leads to better outcomes, and they feel compelled to take their message into the community.
Proceeds from Golfin' Fore Girls have . . .
- Purchased learning tools and models
- Assisted in bringing digital technology to our area
- Supported the women's patient care fund at the Mercy Health Johnson Family Cancer Center
- Be here – Mercy Health Muskegon's Campaign for Breast Wellness
