MORE THAN JUST A CRUISE,

IT'S SOMETHING FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

WHAT A DAY!

 

Both the North Gratiot Cruise and the Chesterfield 5K were a resounding success! Our inaugural Chesterfield 5K supports various high schools in North Macomb County as they compete for the Chesterfield Gratiot Cruise 5K Cup.  This year, Anchor Bay was awarded a grant of $1,000 as the school with the most participants.   Many other runners came from across Macomb County to compete for cash prizes and casual runners from all age groups added to the fitness-forward event that will become a mainstay of Chesterfield for years to come.

 

Once we hit noon, the focus went over to the Gratiot corridor as beautiful and unique cars were on parade for all to see! Car aficionados talked shop as the grills kept people fed and live music kept things rocking. And we were fortunate to have some September sunshine throughout the cruise! 

 

Our sincerest thanks to those who attended the day’s events. And double thanks to our event sponsors who made all of this possible. Special shout out to our Presenting Sponsors, Penske Logistics and Total Life Changes!  Through our nonprofit organization, The North Gratiot Cruise Foundation, we were once again able to raise money to support various community groups in Macomb County.
