Fundraising — Local Impact
The Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run is a major fundraising event for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, collecting much needed donations for children’s hospitals across the U.S. that treat over 10 million children annually. The donations are counted as part of the over $130 million raised since 1996 through Credit Unions for Kids, which is the 3rd largest fundraising entity for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, only after Wal-Mart and Costco.
Since 2002, credit unions and business partners donated over $7 Million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals nationwide. Because of the generous contributions by our lead partner, PSCU Financial Services and other business providers, every dollar generated by credit unions was returned to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital serving their local communities.
“This national credit union effort has an important local impact, since donations from each credit union are given to a Children’s Miracle Network hospital in the credit union’s local community.” Theresa Mann, President/CEO of The Partnership FCU, Washington, DC.
Building Awareness — National Exposure
The world-class run, held in Washington D.C. to coincide with the National Cherry Blossom Festival, represents an important opportunity to gain awareness for our industry on Capitol Hill. The event’s 42-year history, high visibility and scenic beauty draws more than 15,000 runners, including hundreds of influential legislators and staffers. Furthermore, over 231 Members of Congress support the run as Honorary Race Chairs.
“The response from the Member of Congress is outstanding and very helpful to the collaborative efforts of credit unions to raise funds for hospitalized children,” Charlie Mallon, President & CEO of Congressional Federal Credit Union.
