The PCU Community Foundation, the charitable arm of the $559 million Postal Credit Union in Woodbury, Minn., joined in as nearly 700 participants gathered for the Minnesota Musella Foundation 5K Walk/Run on May 11 at Lake Phalen in St. Paul, Minn. That was a 24% jump from last year’s effort for the brain tumor research and information organization and the third year the PCU Community Foundation has participated.
A highlight in this year’s walk was the spirit boost during the event from the White Bear Lake High School cheerleading squad. Local radio personality Susie Jones was also on hand to greet the participants and share memories of her long-time on-air partner Eleanor Mondale, who died from brain cancer in 2011.
“It’s great to see this event grow from year to year,” commented Brian Sherrick, PCU president/CEO and PCU Community Foundation chairman. “Many of us have been touched by this disease, or know someone who has, and the opportunity to raise much needed funds to one day eradicate this illness is a cause we all share. I am grateful to our employees for volunteering their time to help at such an important event and thank all of the participants for their generosity.”
