Raleigh, NC, July 8 – State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU), a long-time supporter and participant of March of Dimes® March for Babies®, once again teamed up with the charity and put their best foot forward to raise nearly $59,000 – a record for the SECU Team! Prior to the annual 3-mile March, in which approximately 300 SECU team members attended, Credit Union staff in the Triangle and surrounding areas collected donations through numerous fundraising efforts including a Cutest Baby and Pet Contest, gift basket bids, raffles, candy bar sales and individual donations. Many branches outside of the Triangle area also raised funds and participated in local walks, adding thousands more to the already record-breaking total for March of Dimes.
Tina Prince, SECU Triangle area Team Captain stated, “It is a pleasure to work with SECU’s branch and operations team captains year after year, and I continue to be amazed by their passion and enthusiasm for this charity, which is also very near and dear to my heart. I could not ask for a better group of people to help with this effort and I was elated to see that even in financially challenging times, our team members became more creative and more passionate, which resulted in SECU’s largest March of Dimes donation to date. I’m overjoyed and extremely proud of this group!”
“Once again, the SECU Team has outdone themselves. Their passion and commitment to this mission is bigger than the problems in our economy. We are blessed to have SECU as a friend of March of Dimes,” said LaRonda S. Scott, Division Director of the Eastern Carolina Division of March of Dimes. “SECU is an example of what can be done when you establish a goal, implement a plan and attack that plan with passion. Their efforts are helping us make great strides in the fight against premature birth. We are thankful for their support and for being a champion for babies.”
