Join us for the 50th Running of the Cherry Blossom 10 mile! Volunteer to support the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10mile, 5K, and/or kids run by staffing the race course, handing out water, distributing medals, timing the race, video recording the race, and so many more opportunities. The course is USATF certified and attracts world renown athletes and distance runners, to include Olympic Gold Medalists, American and World Record Holders.

Volunteers receive a special edition volunteer t-shirt, a commemorative gift, a guaranteed entry to the 2024 Cherry Blossom 10mi/5k, and an invitation to the exclusive 50th anniversary celebration in February. Our race will also serve to fulfill any volunteer hours your child needs for school (since all proceeds from the race benefit Childrens Miracle Network). More information and the link to register can be found at http://cherryblossom.org/generalinfo/volunteer.php
We welcome Students and are eager to help them earn SSL hours at this event. All proceeds from our events support Children’s Hospitals that belong to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a non-profit international organization that helps to treat millions of children across the U.S. and Canada. Since a consortium of credit unions became the title sponsor of the race in 2002, the race has donated over $10.2 million to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
