About the Event
The Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile and 5K Run-Walk are the premier springtime running events in the Nation's Capital. Held during the city's National Cherry Blossom Festival, the event features a flat, fast courses passing within view of all of the National Memorials including the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and Jefferson Memorial.
The event serves as a fund-raiser for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Prospective entrants are encouraged to raise funds through family members, friends, fellow workers, 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 into the always sold out event.
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.
