Live like Max

Posted By: Brianna Canedo (August 29, 2016)
LIVELIKEMAX is a non profit organization ran by the Pardington family in memory of their son Max. Max was normal teenager who didn't know he had a heart condition, and suddenly passed away from an enlarged heart after working out. Like so many others his life could have been saved if he had an ekg test but a sports physical didn't require it so he never had one. This charity raises money to provide children in high school ekg tests for free as well as provide defibrillators to schools for emergency situations. They are also trying to make it required to have an ekg test to play a sport since that would have saved Max's life.Max was an amazing person who was full of life, adventure, smart, and a great sense of humor. Live like Max is trying to make a difference, save lives, and families from happened to them.

Tipping Point Theatre

As the result of the local economic hardship, funding continues to be cut from arts education in schools despite the benefits it offers children. Tipping Point Theatre in Northville believes it’s their responsibility to fill this growing void in educational resources and has expanded their Education & Outreach Programming to include a newly developed production titled “Won’t You Be My Neighbor”. Through stories and songs of Fred Rogers, this 30-minute show will travel to elementary schools in the Metro-Detroit area for a nominal cost and in some districts for free, encouraging and sharing values of being unique, kind and supportive in your community. Also with this performance, a 20–30 minute workshop will be available to demonstrate core values in being a “good neighbor” through fun and engaging theatrical games and activities. Your gift of $1,000 will be used to create props/costumes, purchase supplies and supplement travel expenses.

Loud Township, in very rural Montmorency County, recognized that great need for 911 signs to assist in locating homes in emergencies. With support from Tri-Township Fire Department, Tri-Township EMS and a $1,000 grant from Community Foundation of Northeast Michigan, Loud Township budgeted for and started our 911 sign project in 2015. We have achieved a high quality sign and engineer grade prismatic numbers by purchasing the materials and creating the signs in-house. Volunteers have been installing the signs and the project is about 30% complete. $1,000 from Community Financial Cr Un would allow us to finish this project ahead of schedule.
