Harrisburg, PA - November 6, 2015 - Team PSECU joined together for the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association's 2015 Capital Region Heart Walk on September 20, 2015 on City Island. Team PSECU was made up of PSECU employees, their family members, and friends. The team raised $2,965. 2,000 people participated in the walk.
PSECU has been involved with AHA for over a decade through their participation in both the Capital Region Heart Walk and the Centre County Heart Walk. Participation in the Heart Walks, however, is only a portion of the support that PSECU provides to the American Heart Association. Barb Bowker, PSECU's Vice President of Marketing, serves as the Chair of the 2015 Capital Region Go Red for Women Luncheon. In the past, Bowker has served as Chair of the 2013 Capital Region Heart and Stroke Walk, as well as Vice Chair of the American Heart Association Great Rivers Affiliate Board of Directors. PSECU supports AHA's Go Red initiative by sponsoring and participating in the Go Red Luncheons in the Capital Region, Lehigh Valley, and Lancaster County.
PSECU is committed to helping the American Heart Association impact communities, both locally and broadly. The credit union is in the midst of a three-year sponsorship of AHA that provides funds for initiatives such as Pre-Doctoral Fellowship Grants, CPR Anytime Training, Red Dress Movement, You're The Cure Advocacy, Get with the Guidelines, and Reaching Youth. These initiatives allow PSECU's support to reach beyond our local communities across the state of Pennsylvania to other parts of the country.
Opened in 1934, PSECU was founded by 22 ordinary people who made an extraordinary commitment to each other: To create a financial institution where pooled resources benefit all members. Today, we are a full-service credit union serving more than 400,000 members and have over $4 billion in assets. As a not-for-profit financial institution, our goal remains to help our members and their families achieve a better life.
