More than 100 PenFed Credit Union Employees Participate in Annual Cherry Blossom Run

Seasoned runners and beginners alike from PenFed Credit Union took to the streets of our nation’s Capitol April 2nd to participate in the annual Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run and 5K Run-Walk. This race and the Credit Union SacTown Run in Sacramento, Calif together raised $580,485 for Children’s Miracle Network. More than 100 PenFed employees volunteered their time or ran in the Cherry Blossom races. PenFed sponsored Water Stop Charley, Mile Six of the 10 mile race where volunteers provided water and inspiration to the runners.

Steve Bosack, Senior Advisor to PenFed President and CEO James Schenck, and former Chief of Staff to past NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz, completed the 10 mile run. “It’s truly an honor to be part of the PenFed family and a credit union that believes in the cooperative spirit of credit unions and helping members Do Better,” said Bosack.

Kevyn Myers, PenFed’s Executive Vice President and President M&A Integration and Payment Systems, completed her first 5K run in the Cherry Blossom race. “Children’s Miracle Network is a cause we can all believe in. I am so proud to have completed my first organized race and to have it be in support of an organization that does truly extraordinary work for children all around our country,” said Myers.

Laurie Horstmann, PenFed’s Vice President of Business Integration, a veteran runner of more than 500 races, including nine Cherry Blossom races, organized PenFed’s team. “The Cherry Blossom race is one of the premier running events in Washington, DC,” Horstmann said. “It is such a privilege for PenFed to participate and easy to recruit volunteers to support this terrific event and cause.”
