Another record set for CMNH: This time in Okla.
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (3/31/14)--Oklahoma-based credit unions pooled almost $200,000 for a donation to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through its Credit Unions for Kids program (Leaguer March 27).

The fundraising was accomplished by 16 participating credit unions throughout 2013. A check for a record $197,825 was presented by the credit unions to CMN on March 21.

Credit Union for Kids, a nonprofit collaboration of credit unions, chapters and business partners donated a grand total of $1.3 million to CMN Hospitals in 2013.

Funds for the recent donation were raised through candy sales, coin drives, several golf tournaments, car shows and even a 5K race.

All funds donated by credit union members go to the Children's Hospital Foundation, an organization that ensures children in Oklahoma receive the best pediatric care possible.

Under the umbrella of Credit Unions for Kids, the credit union movement is the third-largest corporate contributor to CMN Hospitals, behind only Wal-Mart and Costco. Credit Unions for Kids has raised more than $110 million for CMN Hospitals since its inception in 1996.
