PSCU Supports Credit Union Advocacy and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

The annual race is a fundraiser for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a consortium of 170 premier children’s hospitals across North America, and part of the Credit Union Miracle Day (CUMD).

As a Sponsor of the CIMG_1123.JPGredit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run, PSCU will come together with credit unions, industry volunteers and members of Congress in Washington, D.C., on April 5 to showcase the credit union difference on Capitol Hill, and impact the lives of sick children across the country during the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run.

Credit unions throughout the U.S. proudly join together each year as title sponsors of the 47-year old race known as the “Runner’s Rite of Spring.” For the 13th consecutive year as a lead sponsor, PSCU is helping to underwrite expenses, enabling the money raised to further research and provide medical care for patients at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. At the culmination of this year’s race, Credit Union Miracle Day is projected to have raised over $9 million for the international non-profit since 2002. Nationwide, credit unions are the third largest fundraiser for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

“PSCU’s legacy of commitment to this race helps raise money for a good cause and provides broad visibility to elected officials about the importance and impact of credit unions in communities across the U.S., which is a win-win for our industry,” said Chuck Fagan, president, and CEO of PSCU. “Ongoing advocacy is critical for the credit union industry, which was built on the foundational ’People Helping People’ philosophy, and we are proud to once again serve as a lead sponsor of this important event.”

The Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run complements the active lobbying efforts of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and the National Association of Federally Insured Credit Unions (NAFCU) trade associations. Capitol Hill staffers are among the thousands of runners each year, providing them with a chance to witness firsthand the community service and volunteer efforts credit unions contribute nationwide.
