CUNA supports Cherry Blossom Run for seventh year
WASHINGTON (3/31/09)--More than 13,000 runners will course this weekend through the streets of Washington, D.C., as the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10-Mile Run is held – fully supported by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). This year marks the seventh straight year that CUNA has worked in support of credit union involvement in the race, proceeds of which benefit Children’s Hospitals throughout the nation. “One of our goals each year is to showcase to Congress and others in the Washington area the work credit unions do in support of their communities,” said CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica. “The Cherry Blossom Run has proven to be an ideal vehicle for this purpose. CUNA proudly supports the Cherry Blossom Run.” This year CUNA will again participate in a number of events related to the run, including:
*Co-sponsor the “Capitol Hill Competition,” a race-within-a-race for runners from congressional offices; *Participate in a Friday press conference at Children’s Hospital in Washington to promote the race to trade and local press; and *Send a team of volunteers to the race to serve in the “bag check” tent, where more than 10,000 runners will store their belongings while they race.
CUNA also serves as sponsor of the event and participates in a number of additional programs. For a short presentation on the people who participate in the annual event, use the resource link below.
