Cal., Nevada CUs Raise $230K For CMN Hospitals
The 8th Annual Credit Union SacTown Run--which took place in Sacramento, Calif., April 8--raised more than $235,000 for local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in California and Nevada.
More than 2,000 runners participated in the SacTown Run--nearly half of them credit union employees and members. The event, which starts and ends at the California state capitol, features a 10-mile race, the UC Davis Children’s Hospital Miracle Mile fun run and fitness walk, a 5K, and the “Homemade-Half Challenge,” for those interested in running the equivalent of a half-marathon.
The event is hosted by the Sacramento Running Association and serves as the Pacific Association 10-Mile Championship.
“Thanks to credit unions and businesses in California and Nevada, together we have raised more than $1.5 million over the past seven years to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals throughout both states,” said Diana Dykstra, president and CEO of the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues.
Major sponsors of this year’s event were California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues; CO-OP Financial Services; CU Direct; Golden 1 CU, Sacramento, Calif.; Greater Nevada CU, Carson City, Nev.; First Tech FCU, Mountain View, Calif.; Patelco CU, Pleasanton, Calif.; SchoolsFirst FCU, Santa Ana, Calif.; Travis CU, Vacaville, Calif.; Wescom CU, Pasadena, Calif.; and Walmart.
