MTVAC & Costco Support the Children’s Miracle Network
Community means everything to us here at the Mount Vernon Athletic Club and we think it’s important to help where and when we can. When we heard that our neighbor and corporate wellness client Costco was fundraising for the Children’s Miracle Network, we knew this was a great chance to jump in. With that, MTVAC recently donated $250 to Costco on behalf of their fundraising efforts for the Children’s Miracle Network. Member Services Manager Jaime Garcia was proudly on hand to present the check to an appreciative Costco representative.
Together We Save Kids Lives
The Children’s Miracle Network works to help improve and save the lives of children in communities all over Northern America, including kids right here in our community. Currently six hospitals in the Virginia area are helped by the Children’s Miracle Network, most locally the Children’s National Health System in Washington, DC.
It’s estimated that one child enters a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital every second. Their battles range from fighting cancer to coping with prematurity and genetic diseases. Regardless of the ailment, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals welcome kids with open arms and open doors.
The mission at Children’s Miracle Network is to increase funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals. Since its establishment in 1983, over $5 billion has been raised for kids and hospitals across the United States and Canada. Donations fund and support 170 children’s hospitals, including research, training, equipment and pay for uncompensated care. With the community’s help, “together we save kids’ lives.”
