Extra Credit Union Supports Childhood Cancer Research in St. Jude Radiothon

wycdDuring the 2019 holiday season, Extra Credit Union teamed up with local Detroit radio station 99.5 WYCD to raise a record-breaking $702,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the station’s Country Cares Radiothon.

Extra Credit Union has been supporting the initiative for at least six years. The radiothon took place Dec. 5-6 with a live broadcast at Art Van Furniture in Canton. In addition to a corporate sponsorship, members of Extra Credit Union’s staff answered telephone calls to take donations on the morning of Dec. 6.

In 2018, the radiothon raised $651,900 for St. Jude.

“Extra Credit Union supports dozens of community initiatives annually with a focus on kids, schools and families, and while this event definitely hits our target, it’s one of the toughest and most worthwhile initiatives we take on,” said Ruthann Varosi, Extra Credit Union’s marketing manager. “Hearing the stories of those affected by childhood cancer definitely makes you count your blessings, and at the same time, gives you a motivation to further help St. Jude in their research to fight the horrible disease. We look forward to helping every year.”
