Approximately 50 Credit Union ONE employees, along with friends and family contributed $3,000 in combined corporate and individual donations.
“Being able to contribute to an organization such as the American Diabetes Association allows us to support our life science partners in the community, and to participate in a cause that touches all of us in one way or another,” said John Kozich, Vice President of Community Relations for Credit Union ONE.
One of many Step Out Walks throughout the country, the Walk held in Detroit had a goal this year of $650,000. With more than 3,000 walkers and 399 teams, they are confident they will reach their goal by the end of the campaign. Over .84 cents of each dollar raised goes directly into research and programs to help the over 25 million people in the USA with this illness.
