It was with tears and a great deal of thanks that the Macomb Intermediate School District’s Homeless Education Liaison accepted a check for $20,000 from the organizers of Macomb Township’s first 5K race Monday. “That’s amazing,” said Kathy Kropf after getting her first glimpse of the five-digit check. “It is the biggest check we have ever received.” The check was a combination of donations and proceeds raised by “Run the Plank: 3 Miles of Faith,” the first community-wide event hosted by Macomb Township’s three churches – Immanuel Lutheran Church, St. Isidore Catholic Church and St. Peter Lutheran Church.
