EAST LANSING, Mich. — Fall in mid-Michigan means leaves changing colors, cooler weather, and running with dinosaurs, right? In East Lansing it does!


Kids, adults and dinosaurs were seen walking and running on Michigan State University (MSU)’s campus during the 33rd annual Dinosaur Dash on October 7, 2018. MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) once again partnered with the MSU Museum to sponsor the run in support of the museum. This year, nearly 60 participants attended the Dinosaur Dash 5K walk/run, with more than 25 Credit Union employees volunteering to help distribute race packets and cheer on the walkers and runners.


“For more than 30 years we have been the title sponsor for the very popular Dinosaur Dash,” said April Clobes, MSUFCU’s President/CEO. “We are proud to be a part of the event, welcoming community families to join us in supporting the MSU Museum.”


MSUFCU has a national reputation for excellence and has received several top industry and workplace awards. For the sixth year in a row, MSUFCU was named as a Top Workplace in the large employer category by the Detroit Free Press.
