In 2016, Metro Credit Union became a first-time participant in the American Heart Association Heart Walk. In 2017, we’re jumping in with both feet as the credit union will serve as a participating sponsor of this great event.

This fundraising event benefits the American Heart Association and their quest to reduce heart disease and stroke in America. Heart disease is still the #1 killer of Americans, but thanks to the AHA, deaths due to heart disease and stroke have declined 35% in the past decade.

In addition to Metro management and staff participating in the event, Metro President, Mike McDermott will serve as a Co-Chair along with UNMC Chancellor, Dr. Jeffrey Gold and Nebraska’s own, Dr. Tom Osborne.

The walk takes place at Miller’s Landing (151 Freedom Park Rd.) and features a one and three-mile course. In addition, the little ones can join in on a half-mile KidsWalk featuring obstacles.

It’s a great event supporting a very worthy cause, and we’d love for you to join in on the fun! You can participate by joining the Metro Team and walking with Metro staff members on May 13th. Your $25 donation gets you registered, plus you’ll receive a great looking Team Metro t-shirt
like the one shown in the ad below. Best of all, you’ll be doing your part to help fight heart

Gates will open at 7:00 a.m. with the kids walk to follow at 8:00 a.m. Opening ceremonies follow at 9:00 a.m. and the adults hit the pavement at 9:30 a.m. To join the Metro team here.  You’ll be taken to Metro’s Heart Walk page where you can choose which Metro branch you’d like to we’d love for you to join in represent.
