Credit Union ONE Walks for Life

Representatives from Team Credit Union ONE ready for The Life Walk
Ferndale, Michigan – The 17th Annual Life Walk was held at Historic Belle Isle Park on Saturday, July 26, 2014, and for the second year Credit Union ONE was proud to take part in the celebration of life. 

The Life Walk is held annually to benefit and celebrate the Minority Organ Tissue Transplant Education Program (MOTTEP).  Giving the gift of life is a sacrifice that cannot be overlooked, and those whose loved ones help provide the ultimate gift are honored during the event.

MOTTEP reaches out to those in communities to create awareness and to encourage individuals to consider becoming an organ donor.  The organization places a special emphasis on education in minority communities where there is low donor participation. It also celebrates both the families of individuals who donated and to those who received organs.

This year Credit Union ONE had a team of 20 walkers/runners including Gary Moody, Credit Union ONE's President and CEO participating in the event.

“Meeting so many people and hearing their stories of being alive because of a transplant is overwhelming," said Gary Moody, Credit Union ONE President and CEO. Credit Union ONE is happy to be among those that support such a great cause - if you are not a donor you need to become one today.”

The MOTTEP Life Walk was a day filled with family, friends, food and fun.  Those attending all shared in the message that each one can extend life through organ and tissue donation with every step they take. 

 Credit Union ONE, headquartered in Ferndale Michigan for over seventy-five years, offers a wide array of financial services and access to over 30,000 ATM’s nationwide, serving 113,000 members, with seventeen offices in three major metropolitan areas, including Metro Detroit, Grand Rapids and Traverse City.
