Sashay for Sacha was started in 2011 by a special group of women who were looking to help out a young mother who had just been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Sacha (Curran) McGrath lived in Mackinaw most all of her life. She was very proud of her hometown community and was very touched by the loving support and compassion shown to her and her family as she was dealt a terminal cancer diagnosis. Sacha passed in August 2011. This run/walk event would go on to become Sacha’s Sashay which not only keeps her memory alive but continues to raise money to give back to the community that gave so much to her. Sacha’s Sashay has now raised $72,125 all of which has gone back to the community.
