170-mile Michigan bathtub push planned for charity

Published:

SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) -- Members of a fraternity plan to push a street-modified bathtub roughly 170 miles across part of the Upper Peninsula this week to raise money for a police department.

WLUC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/WcU57Q ) the annual Tau Kappa Epsilon fundraiser is Friday.

The trip is planned for between Sault Ste. Marie, which is home to Lake Superior State University, and Marquette, which is home to Northern Michigan University.

In previous years the effort has raised money for research on Alzheimer's disease, the Upper Peninsula Children's Museum and Special Olympics.

Proceeds this year benefit the Marquette police department's K-9 unit.
