      Grant Henriksen Memorial Fund hosts golf outing in Marquette

      The 2nd annual Grant Henriksen Memorial Fund Golf Outing was held Saturday at the Marquette Golf and Country Club.

      The event was created two years ago after 15-year-old Grant Henriksen lost his battle with bone cancer.

      A large number of golf teams played games of golf to raise money for families with children that have cancer so they can cover costs their insurance does not.

      "Last year, we decided to start a fund where we help families from the U.P. that have a child with cancer that have to travel out of the area, to help fund that. Fun their travel, fund their lodging, fund their food, etc." said Greg Dix with the Memorial Fund.

      The event also held a live auction and raffle to increase the fund.
