Pep Rally To Kick Off 2014 CU Cherry Blossom Run
WASHINGTON (11/13/13)--Preparations for the 2014 Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run will kick off with a credit union sponsor Pep Rally Nov. 20 at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.
 
Credit unions have been the title sponsor of the run since 2001 when they organized participation as a means of raising funds to benefit the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through Credit Unions for Kids. To date, credit unions have donated over $6 million through their efforts.
 
The Pep Rally will focus on helping credit unions make the most of their participation in this year's run. A panel of credit union marketers will discuss ways credit unions can engage their members in fundraising and race participation while promoting credit union involvement within the community. 
 
This year, credit union sponsors will have additional opportunities to promote their credit union message directly to runners and spectators at the run, which takes place April 6.
 
The run also serves as a showcase for credit unions before lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Attendees will hear updates on the annual Capitol Hill competition for lawmakers and their staff. 
 
Credit union employees who are responsible for marketing, fundraising, running and volunteer coordination should attend. 
 
The National Building Museum is at 401 F St., NW, Washington, DC, directly across from Judiciary Square Metro Stop on the Red Line.  Credit unions can register to attend by e-mailing Credit Union Miracle Day Director Sarah Turner at sturner@mddcua.org.
