The Crucible Hiking Trail Benefit

Green Lake Rustic Campground
Address: 18500 N M-52, Chelsea, MI 48118
The Crucible is a self supported endurance hike to raise money for charity. This year's proceeds will benefit the Semper Fi Fund. Semper Fi Fund provides immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. They deliver the resources they need during recovery and transition back to their communities, working to ensure no one is left behind.
Endurance hiking is defined as any day hike of at least 20 continuous miles along backcountry trails. We chose 22 miles along the Waterloo-Pinckney Trail to represent the average number of veterans lost every day to suicide. The Crucible will be held on September 21, 2019. The hike will begin at Green Lake (18500 N M-52, Chelsea, MI 48118), and will end at Big Portage Lake (11700 Seymour Rd., Grass Lake, MI 49240). There will be 12 hours to complete the hike (8:00am-8:00pm). Aid stations will be at four to six mile intervals where volunteers will be posted with log books. Participants will be given a tee-shirt at the start of the event and will receive a patch if completed within the 12 hour time frame.

    In a workshop series called Guiding Good Choices being offered in Stockbridge, parents will learn how to improve family bonding and reduce the risk of drug use among their children.  From September 25 to October 23, this five-week program will be offered every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Stockbridge Activity Center, located at 305 W Elizabeth Street in Stockbridge.

    Guiding Good Choices is an interactive program for parents of children in grades 4 through 8. In a lively and open atmosphere, parents will learn specific strategies to help their children avoid drug use and other adolescent problem behaviors, and develop into healthy adults.  Parents will learn to set clear family guidelines on drugs, learn and practice skills to increase their children's family involvement, and strengthen family bonds.

    Dr. J. David Hawkins and Dr. Richard F. Catalano of the University of Washington developed the Guiding Good Choices program. Their research has shown that when children are bonded to parents, school and non-drug using peers, they are less likely to become involved in drug use or other behavior problems.

    SRSLY and St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea are sponsors of the workshopThis series is free to attend, however, registration is required.  Childcare is available upon request.  Parents that attend all five sessions will be entered into a drawing to win a gift card.

    To register for the workshop or for more information, please visit www.srslystockbridge.org/ggc/ or contact Emily Griswold at 734-593-6806 or Emily.griswold@stjoeshealth.org.
