Ohio CUs Raise $136,000 For Children's Hospitals
COLUMBUS, Ohio (6/24/13)--Ohio credit unions have raised $136,000 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals as a result of their annual statewide fundraising event, Marching Miles for Miracle Kids. Eighty-five credit unions statewide participated in this year's initiative.

"This is another example of how credit unions are making a difference in the communities they serve," said Paul Mercer, president of the Ohio Credit Union League. "When credit unions collaborate, good things happen. And in this case, the collaboration is helping to support the high-quality pediatric care that thousands of families count on."

Spearheaded by the league's Credit Unions for Kids Committee, the annual march raises money for nine children's hospitals that serve Ohioans. Walks were held statewide during April, May and June and include a partnership with the ColorBlaze 5K in Lima, which attracted 1,500 participants.
