More than 100 golfers joined Teachers to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, including John Schneider, co-founder of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals most famously known for his acting role as Bo Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard.
“We are proud to champion Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and support the essential role they play in providing critical care to children across the country,” said Brad Calhoun, President and CEO of Teachers Federal Credit Union. “We are thankful to our partners, and all those involved in making our first golf tournament a success, and look forward to continuing these efforts for many years to come.”

ABOUT CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS:
More than 10 million kids enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital across the United States and Canada each year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $8 billion. For more information, visit: https://childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org/
