Union 4 Life Donates $20,000 to University of MIchigan for Cancer Research

Mar 4, 2019

A charity run by National Electrical Contractors Association apprentices and IBEW Local 252 have donated $20,000 to a cancer research center in Michigan.

Union 4 Life recently presented the check to officials from the University of Michigan’s Rogel Cancer Center.

According to an article on the website, “the donation was the result of a fundraising drive that involved several area unions. Called ‘Union 4 Life,’ the annual effort is spearheaded by apprentices and raises funds for cancer research through sponsorships and events hosted throughout the year.”

Union 4 Life was founded in 2012 by NECA apprentices and IBEW 252. It has raised, the article said, $90,000 for cancer research at the University of Michigan, and it has hit reached its $20,000 goal in each of the past three years.

 “Union electricians and contractors do a lot of charitable work in their communities, but this one is different because it’s led by apprentices,” Mike Crawford, the executive director at NECA’s Michigan Chapter, said in a statement.
