Points for Pediatrics
The University of Maryland has teamed up with SECU, Maryland’s largest state-chartered financial cooperative, for the Points for Pediatrics Program this basketball season. For every point scored by the men’s basketball team, SECU will donate $5 to the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital.
SECU has guaranteed a minimum donation of $10,000 regardless of how many points the Terps score this season. In addition, SECU will host and recognize University of Maryland Children’s Hospital patients, families and staff when Maryland takes on Wake Forest on Saturday, February 2.
