Friends of the St. Clair River is Michigan’s ThumbCoast watershed organization giving 40 miles of love to the St. Clair River and its watersheds since 2007. We inspire citizen action through stewardship, monitoring and education to restore, protect and enhance the St. Clair River and its watersheds. Our board member, Kelsey Smith Solack, is running for a reason. During her 2nd Detroit Free Press/TCF Bank Half Marathon race she is asking you to support Friends. The Detroit Free Press/TCF Bank Marathon welcomes charities to fundraise through the event, raising more than $2 million towards causes from runners who chose to run for a reason.
