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. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is an affiliation of children’s hospitals throughout the country. Each year these non-profit hospitals provide state-of-the-art care‚ cutting edge research and preventative health education‚ and treat children for every disease and injury imaginable. The network hospitals impact the lives of more children than any other children’s organization in the world. These hospitals are committed to providing the best care for children when they need it.
Since 2002, credit unions and business partners have raised over $8 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals nationwide. The donations are counted as part of the over $130 million raised since 1996 through Credit Unions for Kids®.
In 2017, nearly 200 Members of Congress supported the race as Honorary Race Chairs bringing national exposure to the cause.
