TU Expo, also known as LTUX, is a celebration of game development and eSports. Before we return to our regularly scheduled campus-wide celebration of anime, games, and eSports, we’re going virtual. Now, instead of just one day to celebrate some awesome people and their games, we will be hosting a virtual 6-day event from April 19th through April 24th! Throughout the week, we will host some amazing speakers, panels, and student/indie games, an eSports competition, an awards ceremony, and a charity livestream benefitting ExtraLife of Beaumont Children’s Hospital.
cosplayers, contests, activities, all free for community families to attend

One of the Flint areas favorite family fun events is back! We have an interesting course, a great venue, and the event will be bigger and better than ever! Every finisher will receive a custom finishers medal. The 5K Run and 5K Walk are timed events with age-group awards. The family friendly 1K Family Fun Run will remain a non-competitive event. The Flint Superhero Run promises to provide fun for the entire family.
All proceeds will benefit the Voices for Children Advocacy Center, which is dedicated to serving the child victims and families of child abuse in Genesee County and enhancing the lives of all children through treatment, education and by increasing community awareness
We encourage you to dress as your favorite superhero. Dress up or not, we look forward to seeing you there.
Did you know that April is nationally recognized as Child Abuse Prevention Month? Join Midland county’s Safe and Sound Child Advocacy Center at our 5th Annual Superhero 5K Virtual Fun Run & Walk! Become a Safe and Sound Superhero and #BeTheOne. We believe through the power of one person, one community, one dollar, one action, Midland residents can help to protect children from abuse and neglect and strengthen families right here in Midland county. Runner’s will receive #BeTheOne t-shirts and bracelets for participating. Runner goodies will be available/delivered most likely AFTER April due to CO-VID 19. Preventing child abuse before it occurs is the responsible way to manage our society’s future #CAPmonth
Because every child deserves a hero, and to feel SAFE and SOUND.
