Saturday, Feb. 6, was the annual Walk for Warmth, presented by Genisys Credit Union, at Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in Auburn Hills. Money raised for OLHSA’s Walk for Warmth benefit Oakland and Livingston County families who are faced with a utility shut-off notice.
We had a great time walking around and showcasing our modified OCCRA robot to event participants. It was fun to get kids interested in robotics by teaching them how to drive our robot. Check out these two short videos:
Entertainment at Walk for Warmth included the Genisys Band, free massages, dance team cheers, the Rainforest Café mascot, and so much more! We even saw another FRC team, our friends, Team 5053 - The Lakers!
It was a great success this year, and we hope to participate again next year.
Make it a great one, Corsairs!
