St. Petersburg, Fla.— (March 31, 2022) — PSCU, the nation’s premier payments credit union service organization (CUSO), will once again come together with credit unions, industry volunteers and members of Congress in Washington, D.C., to showcase the credit union difference on Capitol Hill and impact the lives of sick children across the country during the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run®. Scheduled for April 3, the annual race is a fundraiser benefitting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a consortium of 170 premier children’s hospitals across North America, and part of the Credit Union Miracle Day (CUMD).
For the 15th consecutive year as a lead sponsor, PSCU is once again proudly joining credit unions from across the nation as they come together as title sponsors of the 49-year-old race known as the “Runner’s Rite of Spring.” PSCU is helping to underwrite expenses, enabling the money raised to further research and provide medical care for patients at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since 2002, the race has raised and donated over $10 million to the non-profit organization helping treat millions of children across the U.S. and Canada. Nationwide, credit unions are the fifth largest fundraisers for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
“We are proud to be a part of an industry-wide commitment to advocacy that enacts positive change in the lives of real people and contributes to the broad awareness of the importance of credit unions in communities across the U.S.,” said Chuck Fagan, president and CEO of PSCU. “With the ‘People Helping People’ philosophy at our core, we are proud to once again serve as a lead sponsor of this impactful event.”
The Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run® complements the active lobbying efforts of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and the National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions (NAFCU) trade associations. Over 500 Congressional staffers are among the thousands of runners, providing them with a chance to witness firsthand the community service and volunteer efforts credit unions contribute nationwide.
