Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run

For more than 100 years, credit unions have been meeting the financial needs of everyday Americans and supporting the communities they serve. Starting in 2002 with the title sponsorship of the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run in Washington, D.C., credit unions nationwide have collaborated in the cooperative spirit to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through a family of races and other philanthropic events, donating over $8 million to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals throughout the country.

Regardless of your credit union’s size, sponsorship of the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run is an essential part of making your voice heard on Capitol Hill. In 2018, 214 Members of Congress representing 46 states, the District of Columbia, and 3 U.S. territories served as Honorary Race Chairs. More than 600 House and Senate Staffers engaged in a spirited and friendly competition vying for the coveted Congressional Cup.

With 113 million members, credit unions help consumers reach their financial dreams faster. They have the scale, services and cutting- edge products needed for consumers and their families to succeed. By returning earnings back to members through higher rates on savings accounts and lower rates on loans, credit unions are the best financial partners for all Americans.
Nationwide Credit Unions are the 3rd largest fundraisers for CMN Hospitals further demonstrating their strong commitment to their communities and underscoring the positive impact that credit unions make to consumers.
