(BEDFORD) - Votes for Riley Hospital for Children could result in $50,000 to help local children. A nationwide “Vote For Miracles” campaign celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Credit Union for Kids program is now underway.

Through December 20th, Crane Credit Union members and the general public are invited to cast their votes to support Riley Hospital for Children, the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. At the conclusion of the promotion, the top five member Children's Miracle Network Hospitals will be awarded a total of $100,000 on behalf of credit unions.

Crane Credit Union encourages Indiana residents to cast their votes on behalf of Riley Hospital for Children. If voted a top hospital, the monetary gift would be used to continue the life-saving and life-improving care and services Riley Hospital for Children is known for.

The hospital with the most votes will win $50,000. Second through fifth place will receive $20,000, $15,000, $10,000, and $5,000 respectively. When a vote is cast, voters have the option to choose their credit union. The credit union responsible for the most votes in each of the winning markets will be invited to participate in the check presentation for the top hospital.

"We are so appreciative of all that credit unions have done for our member hospitals over the past 20 years," said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. "We are delighted that we can use Vote for Miracles to not only raise much-needed funds for our hospitals but also tell the amazing story of the credit unions' support of their communities."
