DENVER (11/17/14)--Credit unions have many ways to support Children's Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals. The Mountain West Credit Union Foundation (MWCUF) recently sponsored up a 27-day fundraiser that kept donors on their feet.
Participants pledged to walk or run 27.2 miles within 27 days during the Miracle Marathon and tapped into their online networks for the virtual fundraiser.
This is the second year that the MWCUF has been the signature sponsor of the Miracle Marathon.
Credit unions raised just over $70,000, and with additional donations from CO-OP Financial Services' Miracle Match program and others, the total topped out just shy of $125,000.
The 33 participating credit unions weren't restricted to the Mountain Standard Time zone, though. Mid-Atlantic Corporate FCU, Middletown, Pa.; the Kansas City (Mo.) Chapter of Credit Unions; the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas; and the New Jersey Credit Union League took part in the event.
