Credit Union ONE was a proud sponsor of the
19th Annual Gift of  Life Walk/Run. 
Ferndale, Michigan – Credit Union ONE (CUONE) was a sponsor of the 19th Annual Gift of Life Walk/Run benefiting the Minority Organ Tissue Transplant Education Program (MOTTEP) on July 30, 2016 at Belle Isle State Park.

For the fourth consecutive year, CUONE employees participated in the event and joined MOTTEP in celebrating those who have given the gift of life through organ and tissue donation. The event included a 5K and a 10K race, as well as a 5K walk. MOTTEP’s Gift of Life Walk/Run is Michigan’s largest event promoting organ and tissue donation. This year’s event raised more than $69,000.   

“The Life Walk brings together so many and it’s always heartwarming to hear the experiences of those who have been affected by an organ or tissue donation,” said John Kozich, Vice President of Community Relations for CUONE. “It’s a cause we’re proud to support.”
