Ohio CUs' Marching Raises $136K For Hospitals
COLUMBUS, Ohio (7/24/13)--Ohio credit unions raised $136,000 for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through the 2013 Ohio Credit Unions: Marching Miles for Miracle Kids campaign.
 
Credit unions and chapters held fundraisers and participated in regional events and sponsorships to raise the funds, said the Ohio Credit Union League (eLumination Newsletter July 10).
 
Funds raised during the rest of the year will count towards the 2014 total. That includes Miracle Jeans Day, Sept. 18, when credit union associates nationwide can donate $5 to wear jeans in support of their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital.
 
The charity raises funds and awareness for 170 children's hospitals.
 
Credit unions support the hospitals through Credit Unions for Kids, and are the third-largest corporate sponsor of the hospitals, behind only Walmart and Costco, the league said. The effort helps children regardless of their family's ability to pay.
 
Funds raised help support new facilities, equipment, research programs, patient services, special patient needs and health education programs benefiting 17 million children annually.
