MSUFCU Sponsors Annual Eleâs Race 5K

Tweet Button

On July 28, we joined the greater Lansing community and came together to show our support for Ele’s Race 2013!


Ele’s Place is a nonprofit, community-based organization dedicated to creating awareness of and support for grieving children and their families. Through peer support group programs, Ele’s Place helps children to cope with the death of a parent, sibling or other close family member or friend.


There was an outstanding 1,379 participants who registered to run or walk in the race, and a grand total of $62,000 raised! Kids had the opportunity to participate in the fun as well with the Playmakers Kids Mile or free 100-yard dash. There were also crafts and other activities available for children throughout the race such as face painting, a photo booth, and memory wall.


We were proud to once again sponsor this annual 5K race that benefits such a great organization in the community.


Ele’s Race for next year is all ready booked up, so keep Sunday, July 27, 2014, at 9:00 a.m. open for the next race!
