DENVER (1/21/16)--As the signature sponsor for the 2015 Children’s Miracle Network’s Miracle Challenge, the Mountain West Credit Union Foundation spearheaded an effort that raised $98,000.
The foundation’s $25,000 signature sponsorship along with CO-OP Financial Services’ matching funds provided the starting platform for more than 16 credit union teams to raise funds.
Credit unions from Arizona, Colorado and Wyoming, which make up the membership of the Mountain West Credit Union Association took part in the effort.
Miracle Challenge is a 27-day wellness challenge that encourages participants to achieve fitness goals, while fundraising for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Over the course of 27 days participants accomplished 27 different mini-challenges connected to their fitness passions. Along the way, participants were encouraged to raise at least $10 per day on behalf of children in their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
In more than 20 years of fundraising for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals under the Credit Unions for Kids banner, credit unions have donated more than $150 million.
