IBM Southeast Employees’ Credit Union’s Southeast Credit Union Foundation hosted the 1st Annual Kilometers for our Community Virtual 5k on Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22, 2018.
The mission of the Southeast Credit Union Foundation is to improve the lives of children and families in the communities we serve. All proceeds raised were donated directly to the foundation and used to support their causes like local scholarship awards and school supplies for children in need.
The Virtual 5k registration was open for runners and walkers and was sponsored by Visa. All members of the community were welcome to participate or donate. Participants could run or walk at their own pace and at their own time, cross their virtual finish line. With a $35 donation, registrants received a commemorative running shirt. Registrants were asked to use #IBMSECU and #SECUFoundation on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram during or after their run for a chance to win a $50 Visa gift card. Five participants were randomly chosen and won a gift card.
The Southeast Credit Union Foundation Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization registered in the state of Florida.
Stephen Johnson, Director of the Southeast Credit Union Foundation stated, “We love the communities we serve in and want to better the lives of the people living here. This was a great opportunity for community members to get active! It also was a chance to donate to improving lives. Running for our community was a memorable experience. We’d like to thank our title sponsor, Visa, for supporting our efforts to give back to kids in need.”
