ASI Contributes to Marching Miles for Miracle Kids  
A $6,000 contribution from American Share Insurance (ASI) has enhanced a year-long effort by Ohio credit unions that are raising funds for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through Marching Miles for Miracle Kids. In addition to the fundraising from the organized 5K races throughout Ohio communities, the Marching Miles campaign also featured a silent auction event during the Ohio Credit Union League's inVest48 Conference in April. The silent auction was an opportunity for credit union professionals and others to bid on more than 40 donated items. That silent auction raised $6,000 and ASI had volunteered to match the auction total – thus adding another $6,000 to a collaborative effort among Ohio's credit unions and partners to help kids needing the support of a children's hospital.
