More than 1,300 MINI Coopers gathered for MINI on the Mack in 2015, a parade across the Mackinac Bridge in Mackinaw City, Michigan, to break the English-held world record for largest-ever MINI Cooper parade. The parade was organized by MINI of Grand Rapids, with the support of MINI USA, and has become the perfect way to bring the community of car owners together. This year, they are trying to break the world record again and are calling on all MINI owners to help!
Purple Community is thrilled to be the official charity partner for this year’s event! As part of our partnership with MINI on the Mack, we invite attendees to take their participation to the next level, by setting up a fundraising page and encouraging their friends and family to support their efforts to raise funds for Parkinson’s disease research at Van Andel Institute!

Raise any amount of funds to support Parkinson’s disease research at Van Andel Institute, and you will receive one of these awesome card holder key chains – perfect for keeping your MINI keys on! Raise at least $100 and you will receive this limited edition MINI on the Mack t-shirt! Raise $250 or more and you can earn this exclusive water bottle!

*NOTE: T-Shirt sizes are only guaranteed for those that hit their $100 fundraising goal by Monday, July 24, 2017 due to our order deadline. After that time, we will do our best to accommodate sizes.
We are thrilled to share that our friends at The Sharpe Collection have generously donated a MINI Lifestyle Cabin Trolley Luggage piece!
