“I love being a part of the United Way Committee and seeing how much good we can do when we work together. I think having the committee creates a sense of urgency to give back for the greater good. Seeing how much we raise over the course of a few months is awe-inspiring.”— Julia, Credit Union Employee

Supporting Families Across Michigan Through Local Race

Tweet Button

The Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan (RMHMM) provides a home-away-from-home for families of ill children receiving treatment at local hospitals and clinics. They provide all of the comforts of home during these families’ difficult and emotional times associated with their child’s hospitalization.


Did you know the Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan (RMHMM) only asks families staying at their location for a suggested donation of $10 per night? Staying at a nearby hotel could cost families around $100 a night when you factor in food, travel, and etc.


The Credit Union is proud to partner with such an amazing organization that truly gives back to Michigan residents without ever asking for much in return. One of the ways we are able to help support RMHMM’s efforts is through the annual Run for the House!


Each year, the Run for the House brings together people from all over mid-Michigan in an effort to help families that stay at the Ronald McDonald House in our area. However, families come from all over Michigan for care at Sparrow Hospital, even the Upper Peninsula, for various reasons that include premature infant births, children with respiratory distress, and other special cases. The contributions from the race will help to fund operational costs at the house such as loads of laundry and hot meals.


This year, the Run for the House will take place at Delta Dental, 4100 Okemos Road in Okemos, on March 22, 2014. There is fun for the whole family with a 5K and 10K race to choose from, as well as kids’ activities. Also, the Run for the House 5K is excited to be the first race in the 2014 Playmakers Greater Lansing Race Series!
