IBMSECU Participates in 13th Annual Credit Union for Kids Bowl-A-Thon
IBM Southeast Employees’ Credit Union (IBMSECU) recently participated in the 13th Annual Credit Union for Kids Bowl-A-Thon at Bowlmor Atlanta on August 20, 2016. The Greater Atlanta Chapter of Credit Unions hosted the event and IBMSECU raised over $1,500 for the Atlanta Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals.
At this year’s event, the Greater Atlanta Chapter of Credit Unions raised over $42,000 for CMN. This event is held annually as part of the Credit Unions for Kids program. Credit Unions for Kids is a collaboration of credit unions, chapters, leagues, and business partners who engage in fundraising activities to benefit 170 Children's Miracle Network affiliated children's hospitals serving 17+ million kids.
Like all Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals donations, funds raised locally will stay in the community to support the hospital’s greatest needs, which include life-saving research, treatments, equipment, and charitable care. The funds raised help to light the way in helping sick children and their parents navigate through stormy days.
In 2016, more than 3,000 credit unions raised almost $11 million for children. Credit Unions for Kids ranks third among CMN Hospital’s corporate partners in terms of generosity. Contributions fund new facilities, groundbreaking treatments, and vital research, as well as special patient needs. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals benefit more than 10 million children each year.
Michael Miller, CEO at IBMSECU, stated, “We are honored to have such passionate and loyal employees that want to give back to the local communities. We had a lot of fun raising funds for such a worthy organization as the CMN Hospitals.”
