last week the atrium at children’s national medical center was a very exciting place – dozens of patients participated in an awesome event to decorate piggy banks and hang out with 2010 miss america! the lovely caressa cameron serves as a goodwill ambassador for children’s miracle network – an international non-profit serving hundreds of children’s hospitals, and the official platform for the miss america organization. the kids loved meeting her, posing for photos with her and the crown, and she even helped decorate and play games with everyone. during the program following the arts + crafts she also spoke on behalf of the organization and what it means to her to be able to work with the children.
in addition to celebrating the children, the event commemorated the absolutely amazing $923,000 raised by the 2010 credit union cherry blossom run. credit unions have sponsored the run since 2002, and contributed over $4m for children’s hospitals nationwide. on sunday april 11 over 15,000 runners took to the streets of dc, marking the 37th year of a great tradition.
lead partner PSCU financial services presented one of last year’s auctioned piggy banks to juri valdov.
