Joe Dearborn, senior managing director of Children’s Miracle Network, accepted the check. Spearheaded by the Ohio Credit Union League’s Credit Unions for Kids Committee, the annual Marching Miles for Miracle Kids march-a-thon distributes the money to Ohio children’s hospitals. Since the event’s inception three years ago, Ohio credit unions have raised more than $260,000. “A fundraising event of this magnitude is a great display of the cooperative spirit embraced by Ohio’s credit unions,” said Paul Mercer, league president. “We are proud to support the Children’s Miracle Network, and I want to extend my thanks to credit union staff and volunteers who helped make this year’s Marching Miles a tremendous success.” The 190-mile relay-style march kicked off in Newark April 5 and concluded in Cleveland April 23 at the league’s Zenith 2009 convention at the Cleveland Convention Center. On average, marchers traveled 10 miles a day during the 19-day trek.
