SAN DIEGO, Calif., (April 10, 2014) -- San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, sponsored and participated in the 4th Annual Credit Union SACTOWN Ten-Mile Run to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals this past weekend. Locally, proceeds benefit Rady Children’s Hospital.
On April 6, the Credit Union SACTOWN Ten-Mile Run in Sacramento brought together credit unions from across the country with a shared vision of fundraising and helping children. The proceeds from this event support the 170 Children’s Hospitals that belong to the CMN. CMN is a non-profit international organization that helps to treat millions of children across the U.S. and Canada.
“SDCCU was proud to support the SACTOWN Ten and give back to these hospitals that are providing vital care and services for our country’s children,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck. “This race, along with several other annual activities that take place as part of our affiliation with Credit Unions for Kids, provide credit unions across the state the opportunity to collectively make a huge impact in their communities.”
Credit Unions for Kids is the brand under which America’s credit unions and affiliated organizations fundraise for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. All credit union donations, whether raised from the Credit Union SACTOWN Ten-Mile Run or other activities, are totaled through Credit Unions for Kids.
Team SDCCU traveled to Sacramento to run in this year’s ten-mile race, which started and finished at the California State Capitol. The race also featured a three-person relay and the kids’ Miracle Mile. In addition to SDCCU sponsorship, Team SDCCU’s Captain Nathan Schmidt, SDCCU’s Executive Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, raised more than $3,500 to support the effort.
“Team SDCCU was excited to participate in the race. Personally, it’s one of my favorite events of the year. I love to run and I am a big supporter of Rady Children’s Hospital. SDCCU participates in numerous activities throughout the year to support the services they’re providing and need they’re fulfilling in San Diego,” said Schmidt.
