Roanoke, VA, February 21, 2014 – Blue Eagle® Credit Union is pleased to team up with New Country YYD 107.9

Jeff Thompson, CEO of Blue Eagle® Credit Union, shares “Our involvement makes sense on so many levels. While it may fit perfectly with our credit union’s vision ‐‐ enriching your life ‐‐ more importantly it’s about promoting a great cause. Enriching lives is exactly what St. Jude does for the children they treat and the families that benefit from the research St. Jude conducts to find cures. The fact that St. Jude’s daily operating cost is $1.9 million and the families they serve never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing, or food is amazing. The majority of their funding comes from individual contributors. We hope this radiothon will raise awareness and a great deal of money for St. Jude.”
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering research and treatment of children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Ranked one of the best pediatric cancer hospitals in the country, St. Jude is the first and only National Cancer Institute‐designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children.
