Ohio CUs march nets 118000 for CMN
COLUMBUS, Ohio (5/1/08)--Ohio's credit unions presented a check for $103,000 to Children's Miracle Network (CMN) as a result of its annual march-a-thon fundraiser, Marching Miles for Miracle Kids.

Spearheaded by the Ohio Credit Union League's Credit Unions for Kids Committee, the march-a-thon raises funds to benefit Children's Hospitals. After an additional wine auction to benefit the hospitals, Ohio credit unions have raised a grand total of $118,000 during the 2008 Marching Miles for Miracle Kids event. "A fundraising event of this magnitude is a great display of the cooperative spirit embraced by Ohio's credit unions," said Paul Mercer, league president. The 190-mile relay-style march kicked off in Toledo on April 6 and concluded in Columbus on April 24 at the league's Zenith 2008 convention. On average, marchers traveled 10 miles a day during the 19-day trek. For more information, photos, and diaries of each day's march, use the Marching Miles resource link.
