Hanscom AFB, MA (May 6, 2021) – Hanscom FCU participated in and supported the Credit Unions Kids at Heart® 2021 All-Ability Challenge with a donation of $5,350 to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital. Credit union employees and their families could choose to walk, run, roll, cycle, or participate in an act of kindness, all as part of Team Hanscom.
Credit Unions Kids at Heart is collaborative fundraising program for the credit union community that harnesses the power and mission of credit unions in order to support Boston Children’s Hospital. One hundred percent of the money raised will be used to fund several pediatric brain research projects at the hospital, including the search for treatments, therapies, and cures for Moyamoya Disease, Cerebral Palsy, and pediatric brain tumors. Since its founding, Credit Unions Kids at Heart has raised nearly $7 million for Boston Children’s Hospital.
“We’re proud to continue to support Credit Unions Kids at Heart and their mission of funding research and treatment of pediatric neurological diseases that steal childhoods,” said Ray Phillips, Hanscom FCU’s chairman of the board. “Though the marathon looks a bit different this year, we and CU Kids at Heart understands how crucial it is that fundraising continues in order to help end these pediatric diseases. Year after year we are moved by the support of our community, and this year is no different.”
