I’m sad to report that John Lauck, the president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, passed away due to complications from a bicycle accident.
“John’s passing is a tremendous loss for our network; he will be missed by many,” says Bill Cheney, CEO of SchoolsFirst Credit Union and CMN Hospitals Board of Trustees member. “For nine years, he has led CMN Hospitals to incredible fundraising growth. What’s most impressive is he has done it by always keeping the important mission of saving kids’ lives at the center of everything our network does. John was a great advocate for the credit union industry, ensuring a spot at the table for representatives to sit on national boards.”
“CMN Hospitals and Credit Unions for Kids will honor John’s legacy by continuing to raise funds for children’s hospitals across North America,” said Todd Clark, CEO of CO-OP Financial Services and CMN Hospitals Board of Trustees member. “John created a culture within this network that when we can Change Kids Health, we can Change the Future. CO-OP Financial Services joins Credit Unions for Kids in their effort to raise critical funds for kids in need.”
