Our Current Sponsors

Credit Union Miracle Day Inc. Credit Union Miracle Day (CUMD) is a consortium of over 70 Credit Unions, Credit Union suppliers, and Credit Union supporters from across the country. CUMD, in conjunction with lead partner PSCU, serves as the title sponsor of the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run. The proceeds from the event support the 170 Children’s Hospitals that belong to the Children's Miracle Network, a non-profit international organization that helps to treat millions of children across the U.S. and Canada. Over $5.5 million dollars has been donated to the Children's Miracle Network since Credit Union Miracle Day became the title sponsor of the event in 2002.

Each year, the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run in Washington, D.C. brings together credit unions from across the country with a shared vision of fund raising and helping children. The proceeds from this event support the 170 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) is a non-profit international organization that helps to treat millions of children across the U.S. and Canada.

Not only will credit unions work together this year to support the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run, but they will continue to work even harder to reach and support their own communities.  Among the many special services credit unions provide is the outreach they have in their communities, and in today’s economic environment a credit union’s financial services may be your best choice for a financial partner!

Credit unions provide consumers choices for financial services such as checking accounts, investments and loans of all kinds including mortgages. Funds are federally insured, but unlike banks, there are no stockholders at credit unions. Earnings are returned to member-owners in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings rates, low or no-fee products and services. The credit union philosophy of placing members’ needs first is why more than 98.9 million Americans do their banking at one of America’s 6,800 credit unions. Credit unions are for everyone-- no matter where you live, there is a credit union to meet your needs.
