The Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run is in the books and it was another great year for this event. USSFCU and the team of credit unions and organizations sponsoring the event were able to present Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospital with a check for $380,000. USSFCU is proud to be a part of the Cherry Blossom Run and a sponsor of the Capitol Hill Competition. In addition to USSFCU sponsoring the Capitol Hill Competition (CHC), we had a number of USSFCU volunteers pitch in at the CHC packet pickup. The Capitol Hill Competition is the race within a race that pits running teams from the House side against teams from the Senate side to win the coveted Capitol Hill Cup. At the packet pickup, our volunteers were responsible for handing out race bibs, setting up tables, transporting and delivering items for the race and handing out freebies to the runners. Our team of volunteers did an incredible job and we thank them for all of their hard work and dedication.

USSFCU also sponsored the red corral at the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run. The red corral is an area set aside where the second fastest group of runners in race line up to take their place at the starting line. We had another great group of volunteers from USSFCU show up early on race day morning, sporting their red USSFCU jackets, to get the red corral ready for the runners. The volunteers also were responsible for collecting early bird tickets from the runners, answer questions, holding the line for the red corral and finally march the red corral runners down to the starting line. It was a very cold and early morning for this team and we are incredibly appreciative of this team and their dedication to USSFCU and the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run.

Thank you to all of our volunteers! You are amazing and you represented USSFCU well!
