The Island City Mile was established to help fundraise for the Lakeland Union High School Cross Country and Track & Field programs. Proceeds from this year's event will help subsidize WIAA State Championship rings for the 2016 LUHS Boys Cross Country Team. The 2016 team won the 3rd WIAA State Championship in any sport in LUHS history. In addition, they continued two winning streaks: the school's 8th consecutive Great Northern Conference Championship and 3rd consecutive WIAA Sectional Championship in cross country.
