  • August 13, 2019

Ferndale, Michigan – The 22nd Annual Gift of Life Walk / Run benefiting the Minority Organ Tissue Transplant Education Program ( MOTTEP ), was held on Saturday July 27th, 2019 at the Belle Isle State Park.

For the seventh year in a row Credit Union ONE was a Corporate Sponsor and also participated with a team comprised of Employees, Family, and Friends. The goal again was to raise funding and awareness through the importance of organ and tissue donation. “ It starts with registering on your drivers license to be a donor”, said John Kozich Vice President of Community Relations. “ This event continues to grow each year with helping those in need”.

The day included a 5k and 10k race as well as a 5k walk. The annual MOTTEP Gift of Life Walk / Run is Michigan’s largest event promoting organ and tissue donation. The donations were still being processed, but the 3,500 plus participants hoped to raise over $75,000 dollars.
