The Thatcher Markham Memorial Run/Walk is on Friday, June 17, 2022, at 7:00pm. Volunteers are still needed for Thursday, June 16 and on race day! If you can help, please contact Ryan Towles (contact information can be found at the race registration site).
Thatcher's family and our community tragically lost Thatcher at 12 years old as a victim of the 2018 Father's Day flood in northern Houghton County. Thatcher was a longtime CCJHA player. His memory has lived on through many local events and remembrances, and this race is another way to make sure he is never forgotten by everyone in the Copper Country. This event supports the Copper Country Junior Hockey Association and Pigs 'N Heat (Copper Country Police and Fire Relief Fund) in their missions to promote youth sports and support local fire/crime victims in the Copper Country.
