Credit Union ONE Walks for Life to Support Organ and Tissue Donation
Credit Union ONE in Ferndale was a sponsor of the 19th Annual Gift of Life Walk/Run benefiting the Minority Organ Tissue Transplant Education Program (MOTTEP) on July 30 at Belle Isle State Park.
For the fourth consecutive year, Credit Union ONE 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 Credit Union ONE. “It’s a cause we’re proud to support.”
MCCU Donates to Miles for Memories

“Our branch is located directly across the street from Calhoun County Medical Care Facility, where the event took place, so it only made sense for us to donate in some way,” said Andrea Tucker, MCCU Financial Education Coordinator. “Our office has worked on several events with the CCMCF staff and we are honored to be able to support their cause” she continued.
Miles for Memories volunteers rocked (in rocking chairs) for 27 straight hours from Aug. 19-20 at the medical care facility. Twenty seven hours, one hour for each town, city and village in Calhoun County.
