Today is Giving Tuesday!!
I’ve said it here before, and I’ve read it numerous places that you just generally feel more motivated to run when you’re doing a run for a GOOD CAUSE.
Speaking of good causes, and in reference to yesterday’s announcement, did you know that the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run benefits Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals?
Run For a Miracle was founded in 2001, and is a fundraiser started by the organization Credit Unions for Kids. Credit Unions for Kids is the brand name under which credit unions from all over America fundraise for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. There are 170 affiliated hospitals throughout North America, and they are treating over 17 million kids!!
Over the years, credit unions have donated over $4 million dollars to the cause!!! (I’m particularly proud because I work for a credit union, and love that we take part in this as a company!)
As I mentioned yesterday, the lottery for running the 10 mile run has officially opened, and will run through December 13th. But if you’re like me, and have never won anything in your life—by simply raising $500 by March 1st for Run For a Miracle, you are guaranteed entry in to the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run!! (Any funds you raise will go to support your local CMN Hospital.)
I just wanted to throw that out there for those who may be interested. If you’d like more information on raising funds, you can find that information here. OR by going to the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run website and clicking on the box in the top left corner that says, “Become an Online Fundraiser”.
