John - I applaud your enthusiasm, commitment and the brilliant "scholarship" concept to send runners to Washington, D.C. Here's to your health!

John, thank you for your support. This event is a wonderful vehicle for credit unions to do something great for sick children at the local level and get some fantastic recognition on a national level. Also, such a wonderful suggestion to get staff who are working to help the needs of those less fortunate a chance to participate in this event. I guarantee you that once you see the event you will participate evern year.

Wonderful article, I hope this starts a trend... Our CU did something similar on the local level and fielded a cycling team consisting of members and staff to participate in the 150 Mile Bike to Finish MS in SoCal. It was a great experience and we will definitely be looking for more events to participate in.

Fantastic! all of it - the dedication, the contribution, the involvement and let's not minimize the role model affect either. Participating in online communities has confirmed that people (even little people) watch and they remember. Keep up the great work - enthusiasm and discipline are contagious.

John, THanks so much for your support of the event. It's great to see the interest reaching across the country, coast to coast. With help from our lead partner, PSCU, we were able to donate money to all hospitals in CMN's system last year. With more enthusiastic participants like you, we'll be able to give back even more.

Great article. Another approach that you could take is to have employees raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. You can set a minimum that they need to reach and part of their funds can be used to cover their traveling expenses to DC to participate in the race. A number of organizations, such as AIDS Marathon, Team in Training, etc. already have programs like this in place.
