MACKINAW CITY (WKZO) -- An estimated 30-thousand people and one robot joined The Governor on the Annual Labor Day trek across the Mackinac Bridge.
Rick Snyder was accompanied by “Fighting Pi” a creation of the robotics teams at the Macomb International Academy in Armada, built specifically for the bridge walk.
Members of the team and their teachers were also along for the walk, just to make sure the robot made it all the way to the finish.
Walkers were bussed over the five-mile span to the Upper Peninsula to walk the bridge.
The event has been held every year since 1958.
