Charity Fundraising Options

Do you know anyone who did not get into the 2018 race through the lottery but still wants to run?  Tell them not to worry!  They can still run if they simply sign up to be a Charity Race Entry Participant and raise $500 dollars for our official race charity, Credit Unions for Kids, prior to 11:59 P.M. on February 28, 2018. The dollars raised for Credit Unions for Kids go to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, a network of 170 non-profit children’s hospitals located across North America.  Send your friends who are not yet registered to to sign up to become a Charity Race Entry Participant.
Our registered runners are encouraged to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as well. The best way for you to raise money for your local Children’s Hospital through the race is to become an online fundraiser yourself. It’s a very simple process: just take three minutes, go to and set up your individual page. You can also join a team or donate to existing teams or individual runners. Better yet, become a “team captain,” recruit your friends, and really make a difference for kids in your community!
The 2018 race marks the sixteenth year credit unions have sponsored the run in support of Credit Unions for Kids and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Over $8 million dollars has been raised for children’s hospitals during this time. Join thousands of runners, credit unions and credit union suppliers to help provide local kids with state-of-the-art care, cutting-edge research and treatment for every disease and injury imaginable. Remember, the funds you raise go to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital which supports your community.
On behalf of the 17 million kids treated annually at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, our sincere thanks for your support.
