The Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run and 5K Run-Walk serves as a fundraiser for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Prospective entrants are encouraged to raise funds through family members, friends, work colleagues, etc. in support of CMN Hospitals. With a minimum donation of $500 on their own or from others, individuals will receive a guaranteed entry code (deadline: February 15, 2019) for the always sold-out event. Accepted race entrants are encouraged to setup fundraising pages as well.
Credit unions have been the title sponsors of the Run for 17 years. Donations to CMN Hospitals in those 17 years have exceeded $8.5 million. Nationwide credit unions are the 3rd largest fundraiser for CMN Hospitals demonstrating their strong commitment to their communities.
Credit unions help you reach your financial dreams faster. They have the scale, services, and cutting-edge products needed for you and your family to succeed. By returning earnings back to members through higher rates on savings accounts and lower rates on loans, credit unions are your financial partners for life.
Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Our mission: We increase funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals.
Our vision: Together we save kids’ lives.
Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that's one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open.
