Fundraising FAQ

Does the Consumers Credit Union Purple Community 5K require fundraising?
You are not required to fundraise, but we do encourage all participants to fundraise above the entry fee. Every dollar raised makes a difference for people with diseases like cancer and Parkinson’s. 100% of all donations goes directly towards biomedical research and science education at Van Andel Institute to improving the health and change the lives of current and future generations.
