Sacramento, Calif., April 22, 2011—During February and March, Golden 1 employees and members raised more than $10,000 for the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women movement.
Paper Go Red for Women hearts were sold at Golden 1 branches in the Sacramento area. With a donation of $10 or more, members received a red dress lapel pin to wear or share.
On April 2, approximately 100 Golden 1 employees and their family members participated at the 2011 Go Red for Women 5k and 10k walk/run at William Land Park in Sacramento.
"We're proud that a great number of Golden 1 employees and members donated to such a worthy cause," said Donna A. Bland, Golden 1 President and CEO. "By continuing to raise awareness for this deadly disease, the American Heart Association will be able to provide more opportunities for women to learn about their number one health threat—heart disease—and how to prevent it."
The American Heart Association uses all revenue from local and national Go Red for Women activities to support awareness, research, education and community programs to benefit women.
"Health is very important," added Bland. "Providing these monetary funds to the American Heart Association is one way we can continue to support the communities and members we serve."
The Golden 1 Credit Union is California's leading credit union, with more than 80 offices, $7.7 billion in assets and 600,000 members.
