Cherry Blossom Run 2016

Team NASA Federal once again lit up the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10-Mile Run on Sunday, April 3, 2016 with its overwhelming enthusiasm. As in years past, the event brought together credit unions from across the country in support of the Children’s Miracle Network. And once again, the highly spirited members of Team NASA Federal were there, making their support for the kids known in a big way.

Cherry Blossom typically raises around $500,000 each year, and 2016 was no exception, bringing the total amount raised to over $7 million since credit unions became the title sponsors in 2002. NASA Federal employees raised more than $3,100.

This year, the event hosted approximately 16,000 runners, of which 21 were NASA Federal employees and family members and 81 were NASA Federal-sponsored members. Runners were greeted by 91 NASA Federal volunteers, who handed them water and cheered passionately as they passed by the NASA Federal water station.

Thanks to all of the NASA Federal employees, volunteers and runners for their dedication and energy. They make the Cherry Blossom Run special year in and year out.
