At Great Basin Federal Credit Union, we are so excited to be celebrating our sixteenth year with Pinocchio’s Moms on the Run in Reno! Great Basin FCU has sponsored and participated in this event to give back to the community and advocate for breast cancer awareness. We are proud to help families battling breast cancer and other gynecological cancers in Northern Nevada.
The Moms on the Run Story
Pinocchio’s Moms on the Run is a non-profit organization. The organization was created to help families in Northern Nevada with the expenses that come with a breast cancer or gynecological cancer diagnosis.
Gino Del Carlo, the late CEO of Great Basin FCU, was close friends with the Pinocchio’s Restaurant owner, who is also a long-time credit union member. Gino Del Carlo saw the great work happening with Moms on the Run in Reno and became a board member of the organization. Current CEO Dennis Flannigan and CMO Elisabeth Hadler are current board members with Moms on the Run. We continue the tradition which began nearly two decades ago.
Great Basin FCU employees have volunteered with Pinocchio’s Moms on the Run in Reno for sixteen consecutive years. Dennis Flannigan takes the reigns as Race Director on the big day of the Moms on the Run 5k/10k. Elisabeth Hadler is also on the board for the Ride for the Tatas motorcycle poker run. Other credit union employees volunteer as Race Marshals, Volunteer Coordinators, and run participants!
How to Help Moms on the Run in Reno
If you want to join the efforts to help our community, there are many things you can do. We sell pink circles and take donations at our credit union branches in October and April. Buy a circle and make our branches pink next time you stop in to make a deposit! Follow our pink contest in April and watch our three credit union branches become pink.
To help families affected by breast cancer and gynecological cancers right here in Northern Nevada, you can also donate by visiting the Pinocchio’s Moms on the Run Reno website. Then next year, come run or walk with us at the main 5k/10k on Mother’s Day! Get ready for a full day of fun and celebrating mothers at Pinocchio’s Moms on the Run in Reno. See you there!Share:
