It's Not a Sprint, It's a Marathon
The 127th Running of the Boston Marathon took place on April 17, 2023. Representing Team Hanscom was Dan Ziniti, the Credit Union's Chief Strategy Officer and five-time Credit Unions Kids @ Heart Boston Marathon Team Runner.
Dan, who ran on behalf of his patient partner Ryan helped Team Hanscom raise over $50,000 for Credit Unions Kids at Heart in 2023. Funds raised will support children's disease research.
The Credit Union and Foundation are happy to support Credit Unions Kids at Heart and Dan's run through the Foundation's recent cash raffle fundraiser.
Credit Unions Kids at Heart
For over twenty-three years, Team Hanscom has remained committed to raising funds for Children's Hospital Boston as part of the Credit Unions Kids at Heart team. Credit Unions Kids at Heart® (CU Kids at Heart) is a Massachusetts-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and one of the largest collaborative fundraising programs in the nation for the credit union community. Eastern Corporate Federal Credit Union (EasCorp) of Burlington, Massachusetts, founded CU Kids at Heart in 1996 with a small group of Massachusetts credit unions. Today, the organization includes dozens of participating credit unions and corporate sponsors nationwide.
CU Kids at Heart is dedicated to helping children lead healthy and happy lives. The organization and its supporters are committed to funding research activities aimed at the prevention, treatment, and/or cure of pediatric neurological diseases, including Moyamoya disease, Cerebral Palsy, pediatric epilepsy and other seizure disorders, and pediatric brain cancer. Funds raised support Boston Children's Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and their research affiliates, to provide financial stability to these often underfunded research areas. Since its founding, CU Kids at Heart has raised over $9 million dollars.
