SALT LAKE CITY, UT (December 20, 2017) — Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and Credit Unions for Kids today announced the five winners of the 2017 Vote for Miracles campaign.  Over the course of three weeks, more than 600,000 votes were cast more than doubling the vote total for last year’s promotion.   In addition, members representing more than 3,000 credit unions cast votes during the campaign.

Walking away with the top prize of $50,000 with over 100,000 votes, was Hurley Children’s Hospital in Flint, MI.  This is Hurley’s second straight Vote for Miracles win. The funds will help create a special treatment room for pediatric victims of child abuse. From the décor, to an interactive gaming system to distract the child, to comfortable furniture, every aspect of this room will be designed with these young victims in mind. Once the project is completed, Credit Unions for Kids, CO-OP Financial Services and CU Direct will be recognized with a plaque commemorating the gift.
