Credit Union ONE supports Diabetes walk
FERNDALE, MI (September 23, 2013) — Continuing to help make strides in the fight to cure Diabetes, Credit Union ONE participated in the Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes, held at the Detroit Zoo on Saturday, September 14, 2013.
Approximately 150 Credit Union ONE employees, along with friends and family contributed $4,000 in combined corporate and individual donations.
“The walk was a good opportunity for us to participate in a cause that touches all of us in one way or another,” said Swami Seetharaman, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Credit Union ONE. “Being able to contribute to an organization such as the American Diabetes Association allows us to support our life science partners in the community.”
One of many Step Out Walks throughout the country, the Walk held in Detroit had a goal this year of $600,000. With over 3,500 walkers and volunteers, they have already raised over $550,000 with several commitments expected, and 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.
Credit Union ONE, headquartered in Ferndale Michigan for seventy-five years, offers a wide array of financial services and access to over 30,000 ATM’s nationwide, serving 107,000 members, with seventeen offices in three major metropolitan areas, including Metro Detroit, Grand Rapids and Traverse City.
