July 23, 2015
Along with hundreds of others, employees of Global Credit Union participated in the March of Dimes March for Babies on April 25, 2015. In addition to being one of the local sponsors, Team Global raised over $8,200. Global currently is one of the top three corporate fundraisers for the event.
Led by co-captains Linda Crane and Morgan Brooks, Team Global consisted of 54 team members, which included employees, family members and friends, including four sets of twins. Team members, aged 18 months to 60+ years, participated in the three-mile March for Babies.
“I am so proud to have served as Team Global’s co-captain,” remarked Linda Crane, executive administrative assistant at Global HQ. “I participate in March for Babies because I have been blessed with three beautiful and healthy baby girls (two of which are twins!). I am so thankful for all the extra monitoring and testing that was done during my twin pregnancy to ensure that my girls came into this world healthy. I am thankful for the work and the research the March of Dimes is doing.”
“I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of the Global CU Family. I am amazed at the amount of participation from our team,” remarked Morgan Brooks, the other co-captain and administrative assistant at Global HQ. “I am super passionate about healthy pregnancies and healthy beginnings, I personally have benefited greatly from the research and resources that the March of Dimes provides. Because of my own experiences, it put a lot of emphasis on making sure we saw success and then some!”
Global President/CEO Jack Fallis, personally donated $10 for each employee who walked in this year’s March for Babies.
Over the last 13 years Global has raised over $33,950 for the March of Dimes cause.
