Citadel Credit Union helps raise over $2 million for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Cancer Center

Citadel Credit Union, presenting sponsor of the CHOP Parkway Run & Walk, announced an additional contribution for CHOP’s Cancer Center.

Presented to CHOP at Parkway’s 20th Annual Event, Citadel doubled its annual total to $300,000 to help CHOP raise a record-breaking $2 million to fund critical childhood cancer research and care.

Citadel has been the presenting sponsor of Parkway since 2019 – and will continue to be the presenting sponsor in 2023 – and has raised a total of $750,000.

More than $43,000 of Citadel’s contribution this year came from funds raised by Citadel’s Building Strength Together team of 170 employees. This more than doubled what the team collected in 2021.

Held Sept. 25 along Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the event drew nearly 10,000 supporters, including more than 300 teams, who participated in the largest annual fundraiser for the CHOP Cancer Center, a leader internationally recognized leader in pediatric cancer treatment and care.

“At Citadel Credit Union, we believe investing in the health and well-being of our children is one of the most important ways to strengthen our community,” said Citadel CEO Jeff March. “I continue to be honored by the researchers, doctors and patients of CHOP’s Cancer Center for all they do for the children of Greater Philadelphia and beyond. The energy at the Parkway event is the epitome of community support, and Citadel is proud to continue to be a part of this event each year.

In addition to the boardwalk event, Citadel hosted several of CHOP’s Cancer Center Ambassadors at its offices in August. To help spread the word, March spoke with the Ambassadors about what it’s like to go to CHOP from a child’s perspective and why it’s essential to raise money for Parkway and childhood cancer. During the conversation, the group decided to set a goal of raising $2 million.
