(Indianapolis, IN) Indiana Members Credit Union (IMCU), Central Indiana’s largest credit union, supported Breast Cancer Awareness Month and donated $5,841 to Pink Ribbon Connection.
IMCU’s President and CEO, Ron Collier, challenged employees to show their support for this cause by raising $2,500 throughout the month of October and IMCU would make a company match. Employees rose to the challenge, surpassing the goal, and IMCU donated $5,841 to Pink Ribbon Connection whose mission is to provide emotional support, local resources and education to those touched by breast cancer across Indiana. The check was presented to Dori-Sparks-Unsworth, Executive Director of Pink Ribbon Connection, on Tuesday, October 31, 2017, at IMCU’s Southside Headquarters.
“Many employees at our organization have been touched by breast cancer personally or through a family member or friend, which is why it’s important to continue to support worthwhile causes such as, Pink Ribbon Connection,” said Ron Collier, President and CEO of IMCU.
“We are truly honored to give back and support this effort to bring awareness to the public about this disease.” Dori Sparks-Unsworth, Executive Director of Pink Ribbon Connection, stated, “Pink Ribbon Connection is thrilled to have such great support from the employees of Indiana Members Credit Union. To have raised this much money during Breast Cancer Awareness Month is remarkable!
