“I look forward to walking in the MSU Homecoming Parade every year and representing MSUFCU. The Credit Union leads the parade, carrying the banner and handing out over 10,000 glow necklaces to all the fans. I always get an overwhelming sense of pride hearing the crowd cheer for us and yell how much they love MSUFCU! ”— Carrie, MSUFCU employee

The annual Race for the Place 5K took place on Sunday, April 9, 2017, on Michigan State University’s campus. MSU Federal Credit Union joined over 700 community members from across mid-Michigan to support MSU Safe Place, a program that provides advocacy, emergency shelter, counseling, support groups, safety planning, information, and referrals to survivors of violence and their children.


Race for the Place 5K raised approximately $25,000 through participants’ entry fees and sponsorship donations. MSUFCU is pleased to play an active role again this year by participating as a platinum sponsor, sponsoring employees’ entry fees for the race, and providing volunteers to help with registration. This year, more than 60 Credit Union employees joined in the effort to give back to MSU Safe Place. 


Alyssa Baumann, Volunteer & Advocacy Coordinator of MSU Safe Place commented, “MSUFCU plays an invaluable role in the success of Race for the Place. MSUFCU’s contribution helps to fund advocacy and other support services for survivors of relationship violence and stalking. Additionally, MSUFCU’s encouragement of staff involvement helps to boost our race participation every year.”


The Credit Union is proud to support MSU Safe Place and sponsor the Race for the Place 5K!
