Northwest Federal Sponsors Annual Cherry Blossom Ten-mile Run

$12.5K donation part of Credit Union’s “70 Acts of We”

Federal Credit Union
was recently a sponsor of the Credit Union
Cherry Blossom Ten-mile Run, proceeds from which benefit the children
treated at Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) hospitals. The race, held on
the grounds of the Washington Monument, raises money to support the
Credit Union Miracle Day charity, which brings together credit union
organizations throughout the United States to support the 170 CMN

“The Cherry Blossom run is a special event for Northwest Federal
employees and their families; every year we come together to cheer on
the runners and show our support for this worthy cause,” said Northwest
Federal’s Acting President and CEO, Jeff Bentley. “We are honored to
join with our fellow credit unions to support Children’s Miracle Network
and the good work they do.”

120 employees, family members and friends of Northwest Federal
volunteered to marshal the course and participated in the run. The
sponsorship was part of a year-long “70
Acts of We
” initiative celebrating the Credit Union’s 70th
anniversary with 70 charitable acts benefitting their members, community
and employees.
