Citadel Credit Union has renewed its partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for an additional three years as the presenting sponsor of CHOP’s annual Parkway Run & Walk.

The event takes place each year during September’s National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and is the largest annual fundraiser for the Cancer Center at CHOP. Citadel Credit Union will form a team of employees and encourage its members to join the thousands of supporters in the fight against pediatric cancer.

“On behalf of the Cancer Center, I would like to thank Citadel Credit Union for its ongoing partnership and sponsorship of our annual Parkway Run & Walk,” said Dr. Stephen Hunger, Chief of the Division of Oncology and Director of the Center for Childhood Cancer Research at CHOP. “Citadel’s community involvement and generosity not only help support breakthrough research and exceptional patient care within our Center, but also get us one step closer to conquering childhood cancer for children all over the world.”

“Citadel’s mission is to build strength in our community, and one of the most important ways we do that is by supporting the CHOP Parkway Run & Walk,” said Jeff March, Citadel’s President and CEO and a member of CHOP’s Corporate Council. “We are proud to renew our commitment to this incredibly successful fundraising endeavor that continues to surpass its goals to fight childhood cancer each year. Parkway not only supports families across our local Philadelphia region, but worldwide. No matter what challenges we may face – the inspiring togetherness of community that is woven into the fabric of this event will continue to make it a success.”

The Parkway Run & Walk is a poignant finale to the Cancer Center’s efforts to raise critical funds and awareness during September’s National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This year, participants will converge outdoors at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Sept. 26, many with signs and t-shirts dedicated to children in the community with cancer. It will be a time of celebration and reflection and an opportunity to reconnect with doctors, nurses, and staff from the Cancer Center.

The event will also continue as a monthlong virtual challenge where participants have the option to create a team, set a mileage goal, get active, and raise funds for pediatric cancer research and care at CHOP.
