What's better than getting together bright and early and going for a walk or a run? Walking or running with credit union peeps at the Michigan Credit Union League Annual Convention and Expo to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network!!!

Join the Credit Union for Kids Group Fun Walk/Run hosted by the Mid Michigan Chapter of Credit Unions on Friday morning, June 8th at 6:30 am! 

The group walk and run will start at Jazz Live Field (near the golf clubhouse)on the grounds of Grand Traverse Resort and Spa and loop back to the start area, with portions of the race running on Lautner road. There are no major road crossings but with portions of the race running on the road we recommend being attentive to potential traffic. Easy-peasy to find...you'll see us! Walking or running whatever distance or pace you want! 1 mile, 2 miles, 3 miles, we have you covered! You are free to run or walk whatever distance, whatever pace you like! Volunteers will be help you navigate the course through the beautiful resort.

So, you need your sleep? We totally get it! So, you still wanna help? We LOVE you and have created the "I'm Sleeping In But Wanna Help" distance!! You will still get the shirt and your ZZZZZ's!

This is NOT a timed event, no steadfast race route (you decide how far you want to go), not even an entry fee to make it an official foot race. So, no need to get goofy about your time, just a fun and healthy way to start the day off on the right...foot! This is just another way to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network.

Special guest appearance by Greg Meyer! Come meet the 1983 winner of the Boston Marathon! Currently, Greg Meyers is the Vice President of Fund Development and Communication at Grand Rapid’s YMCA. He served as Vice President and Executive Aquinas College and the University of Michigan where he was Regional Director (West Michigan) for Major and Planned Giving.
