Genisys Sponsors Arthritis Foundation Walk at Detroit Zoo

AUBURN HILLS, MI (May 24, 2013) Genisys Credit Union was a recent sponsor for the Arthritis Foundation Walk at the Detroit Zoo. Genisys donated $2,500 from their employee casual fund toward the cause.

“On behalf of the 46 million adults and 300,000 children who live with arthritis, the nation’s leading cause of disability, thank you for supporting the Arthritis Foundation in its mission to provide leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis,” said Laurie Rupp, Arthritis Foundation Community Development Manager.

Money collected from the event is used to fund arthritis research projects, create and maintain “life improvement” land and water-based exercise programs and sponsor a week-long residential summer camp called “Camp Dakota” for Michigan children who live with arthritis and related diseases.

“Genisys is proud to not only sponsor a cause that affects so many people, but to take their motto, ‘let’s move together,’ literally by having volunteers participate in the Arthritis Walk,” said Jackie Buchanan, President/CEO.

In Michigan, 2.5 million adults and 10,300 children live with the daily pain and limitations from more than 100 forms of arthritis.
