Raleigh, North Carolina, UNITED STATES

RALEIGH, N.C., June 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) had a huge presence at this year’s Triangle area March of Dimes March for Babies® event, with nearly 300 Credit Union employees, family members and friends walking the 3-mile trek in honor of those affected by premature birth.  With their competitive spirit in full force, SECU branch and operations employees raised nearly $60,000 for the worthy cause through many fundraisers and individual donations.  The Credit Union’s efforts aren’t limited to the Triangle either, as thousands of dollars raised by SECU branches across the state cumulatively supported the 2017 March of Dimes’ campaign.
