Resource Director - Renee Cunningham

Renee Cunningham, born and raised in Calumet, spent 20 years in the Detroit area before returning to the Keweenaw to help out with family.

In 2011, Renee became instrumental to the success of PJ Olsson's Rock Camp for Kids (Renee and PJ Olsson) pictured to the right, where she worked closely with Todd Brassard, the camp's director. At the time, Todd was also the Race Director for a new community event call the CopperDog 150. Todd wasted no time recruiting Renee for the CopperDog 150.

As of early 2018, Renee has been with the CopperDog 150 for 6 years. In the early days, Renee helped coordinate the food vendors, the Kids Sled Dog Rides, and the opening ceremony and start of the race - the big Friday night event that is the most popular high point of the weekend event.

Renee took on more responsibility joining the CopperDog Board of Directors in 2013 where she took on various roles typically related to communication, tasks and scheduling, and resource management.


In 2015, when the responsibilities of Race Director and Asst. Race Director were reorganized into Race Director, Community Director, and Resource Director by new board chair Brad King, Renee became the Resource Director.

Renee is married to Dan Cunningham. She enjoys hikes with her family during the warmer months, traveling with the family, reading and volunteering at her daughter Maryn’s school.
