MSUFCU Sponsors Annual Eleâ€™s Race 5K
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!
