COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT

906 Adventure Team

“We submitted for a grant for the 906 Bench Team to help put together a bike team for the Marquette County kids.The grant has given us the opportunity to go out and purchase a trailer that basically made our whole operation mobile so the kids don’t necessarily come to us. We can get to the kids…The transformation you see in them physically, emotionally, socially is amazing.”
