2019 CMN Miracle Jeans Day – Media Press Release
Wednesday, September 11, 2019 was 2019 Miracle Jeans Day, and MCWV staff wore their favorite jeans to help raise funds for local children who need special medical help. All donations were to benefit our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, WVU Medicine Children’s, and their CU Learning School Intervention Program .
2019 Champion Child
For this year’s Miracle Jeans Day, MCWV enlisted the help of WVU Medicine Children’s 2019 Champion Child Ziler Hawkins to help reach our $1,000.00 goal. MCWV agreed to match all donations made up to that $1,000.00.
Ziler helped us kick off our #ZilerStrong fundraising campaign with a live Facebook interview that we had in our credit union on #MiracleJeansDay. View more pictures from that visit with Ziler. This campaign was developed for Ziler and other kids who are counting on CMN Hospitals.
Reaching our Goal
Through various fundraisers and many generous donations made in the fall of 2019, MCWV was able to reach our goal! Ziler joined us on another live Facebook interview to help us make our big announcement.
MCWV graciously thanked 2019 Champion Ziler Hawkins by presenting her with a commemorative certificate for serving as the inspiration for the #ZilerStrong fundraising campaign held in 2019. Young Ziler’s courageous storytelling and heart-warming personality helped MCWV to raise the over $1,000.00 in member donations which the credit union matched for a total donation of over $2,000.00.
