Educational Systems Federal Credit Union sponsored over 70 runners in the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Run

GREENBELT, MD (April 25, 2016) — Educational Systems Federal Credit Union supported the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Run by sponsoring over 70 runners who all wore bright yellow shirts with the Credit Union’s mantra “Support Education” emblazoned on the back. The Race was held on April 3, and all proceeds benefitted the Children’s Miracle Network.

Educational Systems FCU sponsored 24 athletes in the 10-mile run and 47 individuals in the 5k race with nearly a third of those runners coming from the education community. One of the five “Support Education” teams entered in the 10-mile run by Educational Systems FCU was comprised of three students from Patuxent High School in Calvert County.
Educational Systems FCU sponsored mile markers one and nine, and volunteers wearing the Credit Union’s “Support Education” shirts helped runners by working the water stop at 8.75 miles on the 10-mile course. The Credit Union also raised over $7,300 for the Children’s Miracle Network. This year’s effort marked the highest number of runners and the largest donation the Credit Union has ever made to the Cherry Blossom Run event.
“Sponsoring student runners and members of the education community to participate in the Cherry Blossom Run is a great opportunity for us to celebrate those who make a difference every day,” remarked Chris Conway, President/CEO of Educational Systems FCU. “We are proud to support education and the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10-mile Run.”
