5K Fun Run/Walk Proceeds to Support Construction of Crittenton’s New Patient Tower
Auburn Hills, Mich. – June 25, 2013 — Genisys Credit Union, which provides services to anyone who lives or works in the Lower Peninsula, proudly sponsored Crittenton Foundation’s 5K Fun Run/Walk, which was part of the 34th Annual Golf, Tennis, & Fun, a multi-day event in Rochester.
This was the first year for the 5K, which started and finished at Crittenton Hospital Medical Center, spanned two different cities and included the Paint Creek Trail and the Tienken Rd. Hill, which are also part of the Brooksie Way Marathon.
With over 300 attendees, the event was a success and included toddlers, pets, families, experienced runners, and seniors. Cheerleading squads from Stoney Creek, Rochester, and Rochester Adams high schools were present to cheer on runners as they started the race. Prizes were awarded to the top three finishers in each division. Winners in each age group were awarded custom steel water bottles.
“Genisys is happy to support the Crittenton Foundation and their commitment to improving the health and wellness of those in the community,” said Jackie Buchanan, President/CEO.
Proceeds from the race will support the hospital’s new 165,000 square foot patient tower, scheduled to open in 2014.
“We are so grateful for our title race sponsor, Genisys Credit Union, for supporting Crittenton,” said Melinda Conaway Callahan, Crittenton Foundation President. “Their generosity saves lives and makes a difference for our patients. Together we are promoting healthy lifestyles and making a difference by supporting the health and wellness of those in our community.”
