“Chief Financial Credit Union is thrilled to be the presenting sponsor of the 2017 Rochester Community Schools Foundation Hometown Hustle. The RCS Foundation and Chief Financial share similar values in that we are both committed to seeing our community grow,” said CFCU Assistant Vice President of Culture & Relationships Lindsey Daines. “We are filled with excitement to play such an integral role in the day, being host to all of the friends, families and supporters of the RCS Community Foundation as they begin and end their race from our front door. Our Chief Financial team looks forward to being part of the day and working together with the RCS Foundation to make this the most successful event possible.”

Amidst the updates, the race route will essentially remain the same. “The Hometown Hustle brings community members of all ages together to enjoy the picturesque race route that runs through the historic neighborhoods of Downtown Rochester, the Rochester Municipal Park and the Paint Creek and Clinton River Trails,” said RCF Foundation Chairman and Volunteer Bob Justin.
