Dayton area credit unions teamed up for the 7th annual Marching Miles for Miracle Kids walk on April 20th. Mascots from Max & Erma’s along with approximately 50 walkers (including 1 four legged friend) met for the event.
With a few words of appreciation for their support, the marchers began the trek from Universal 1 Credit Union to Dayton Children’s Medical Center. Upon arrival at the hospital, the walkers were greeted by Dayton Children’s employees, Wally Bear (Dayton Children’s mascot), and hospital ambassador, Ethan Conley and his family.
A short reception with refreshments was provided by Auntie Anne’s Pretzels (Dayton Mall location) and Dayton Children’s for the participants. Ethan’s father shared their amazing story and thanked everyone for their support of the Marching Miles for Miracle Kids program.
The event wrapped up by having a drawing for great prizes which included an iPad mini, baseball tickets for the Reds and Dragon’s games which had been donated by various local credit unions. We are looking forward to next year’s event!!
