By JERRY WOLFFE
The Futures Foundation has been named a beneficiary of the Run The Plank 5K Run/Jog/Walk on June 28, 2014 at 8:15 am.

The event is a collaboration between three churches located on Romeo Plank Road in Macomb Township – Immanuel Lutheran, St. Isidore Catholic Church and St. Peter Lutheran.
 
Last year, 1,430 runners and walkers participated in the race and $45,000 was raised for the designated charities. Organizers are hoping 2,000 people will  participant this year. The Futures Foundation "is honored" to be one of the chosen charities, said Foundation Executive Director Teri Donaldson .

Registration is $30 and includes a tech t-shirt, cinch bag, wristband with discounts for dining and shopping establishments, medal with lanyard, complimentary pasta lunch/dinner on Friday (6/27) during packet pick up, complimentary Family Fun Fair, and complimentary food and beverages at the Fun Fair.

As a beneficiary, we are encouraged to have runners and walkers participate.  We also need to provide volunteers for the event. The awards ceremony is scheduled for 9:30 am. The Family Fun Fair runs from 9:30 to noon and includes inflatables, clowns, food and beverages.
