CUNA in for the mile at 2011 CU Cherry Blossom Race
WASHINGTON (4/1/11)—Around 15,000 runners will again take to the streets of the nation’s capital this weekend at the annual Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10-Mile Run. This will be the tenth straight year that the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has worked in support of credit union involvement in the race. CUNA will again serve as a co-sponsor of the "Capitol Hill Competition," a race-within-a-race for runners from congressional offices and will take part in a Friday press conference at Children's Hospital in Washington to promote the race to trade and local press. Twenty-four CUNA volunteers will also work the race bag check tent, where more than 10,000 runners will store their belongings while they race. More than 700 credit union members work as race volunteers, and 7,000 of the racers themselves are credit union members. Four CUNA employees will be among the runners. Race organizers expect the all-time 200,000th finisher to cross the finish line this weekend. The title sponsor, Credit Union Miracle Day, Inc., has raised a total of $5 million dollars for the Children’s Miracle Network in its ten years of race sponsorship. Credit Union Miracle Day, Inc. is slated to sponsor the race through 2016.
