United Federal Credit Union Helps Raise $37,000 for Childhood Cancer R

ST. JOSEPH, Mich. – United Federal Credit Union (United) is pleased to announce it helped the Alex Mandarino Foundation raise $37,000 during the 7th Annual Duck Duck Run 1K and 5K for childhood cancer research.

The fundraiser encouraged children of all ages and adults to run or walk to support the cause. It was held on Saturday, June 15, 2019, at Margaret Upton Arboretum in St. Joseph, Michigan and more than 850 runners/walkers participated in the event.

“The Duck Duck Run event is special to all of us at United,” said Terry O’Rourke, President/CEO. “The Mandarino family is a true inspiration, and the work being done by The Alex Mandarino Foundation to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research should be applauded. The team at United is dedicated to helping our members and the community when we’re needed most, and I couldn’t be prouder of our team for stepping up to support such an important cause.”

United hosted a tent at the event on June 15 where volunteers handed out duck-themed water bottles to attendees, and coin saver books to children. The tent also offered entertainment such as corn hole and jumbo yard Jenga.

“We’re very honored and humbled by the fact that United Federal Credit Union has taken such an active role, not only in this event but in our mission to raise money for cancer research,” said Tony Mandarino, founder of The Alex Mandarino Foundation. “As a father, it’s pretty moving to see the impact Alex made on the community that this many people come out to participate, and we’re thankful to United for helping us make the Duck Duck Run bigger and better each year.”
