Ohio CUs raise 130000 for kids hospital
COLUMBUS, Ohio (4/11/11)--Credit union leaders in Ohio presented $130,500 to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as a result of their annual statewide fundraising march to benefit children’s hospitals. The contribution brings Ohio credit unions’ five-year total since the inception of “Marching Miles for Miracle Kids” to a half-million dollars.

The Evans family, ambassadors for Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and Joe Dearborn, senior director of Credit Unions for Kids, accepted the check on behalf of CMN Hospitals. The eldest child in the Evans family has been treated for cancer at Nationwide Children’s and has been cancer free for three years. More than 400 credit union professionals statewide shared in the announcement of this year’s grand total at the Ohio Credit Union League’s InVest48 conference held in Columbus, Ohio, Tuesday. Led by the Ohio Credit Union League’s Credit Unions for Kids Committee, the annual Ohio Credit Unions: Marching Miles for Miracle Kids walk-a-thon raises money for the nine children’s hospitals that serve Ohioans. The march kicked off in Cincinnati March 28, with walks following daily in Dayton, Toledo, Cleveland, Akron, Youngstown and Columbus. “We look forward to this event every year,” said Jaime Crooks, committee chair. “It’s our chance to collaborate together and show our true ‘People-Helping-People’ cooperative spirit.” Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals generates funds and awareness programs in partnership with and for the benefit of member hospitals/foundations and the children they serve. Organizations, media partners and individuals unite with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to help sick and injured kids in local communities. Donations to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fund specialized medical care, research and education.
