April 4, 2022 — Credit Union Miracle Day, presented a $323,000 donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN), yesterday at the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run. Of the total donated to CMN Hospitals, $65,748 was raised by runners, their families and friends. Since credit unions became the title sponsors in 2002, over $10.2 million has been donated to CMNHs nationwide.
The race returned to April for an in-person run for the first time since 2019 as COVID restrictions cancelled the Run in 2020 and delayed an in-person event to September in 2021.
“We are thrilled to be “back to the blossoms” and celebrating our 20th year as the title sponsors of the Run,” said John Bratsakis, chair of Credit Union Miracle Day. “For the past 20 years, credit unions have been working together to make a significant impact in our communities and in the lives of children treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The funds raised directly benefit CMN Hospitals in local communities, helping to fund research, treatment, and medical equipment.”
The annual Capitol Hill Competition, sponsored by Congressional FCU and United States Senate FCU, is the race within the larger Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run. House and Senate offices form teams to compete for the Capitol Hill Cup. The team with the best race time wins the cup to display in its office. This year there were 61 teams with over 500 staffers competing (team results will be announced at a later date).
