Hanscom AFB, MA (July 1, 2018) – Hanscom Federal Credit Union participated in the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life” on June 9, 2018, in Burlington, MA, raising a grand total of $12,860 through a variety of channels, the most ever raised by Hanscom FCU’s “4 A Cure” 17-member team. Throughout the year, the team surpassed their financial goal of raising $5,000 by hosting fundraisers and collecting pledges from friends, family, and co-workers.

The total included a $5,200 match through Hanscom FCU’s Charitable Foundation. Additionally, the credit union was an event sponsor at the $1,000 level, which allowed for a table and tent used to sell raffle tickets for donated gift baskets during Relay.

“Relay for Life has given me a way to offer positive support to someone with cancer,” said Sandy Imbrogna, Hanscom FCU’s “4 A Cure” team captain and a training specialist at the credit union. “It’s a great thing to be involved in.”

Said Hanscom FCU’s Chairman of the Board Paul Marotta, who attended in the event, “Relay for Life is fun, joyous 12-hour event many of our employees look forward to participating in each year, but we never forget how devastating a cancer diagnosis can be. Thanks to fundraising events like Relay and the aggressive search for cures by researchers, cancer will, someday, be a disease we’ll leave in the past.”

Hanscom Federal Credit Union, headquartered at Hanscom Air Force Base, serves over 82,000 members across the country and overseas through 21 branches, over 100,000 service centers and surcharge-free ATMs, 24-hour telephone service, and a web-based branch. The credit union holds $1.3 billion in assets.
