“To raise money for and awareness of breast cancer and women’s health, and to showcase the talents of Alaska’s women athletes.”
That is the official mission statement for the Alaska Run for Women. The charity run was started in 1993 and had 758 participants in its first year. Now, in 2018, there were over 5,000 participants who donated a total of $152,417.
Chugach has been participating in this event since 2006 and is always honored to do everything we can to help those who have survived and those still battling cancer.
In 2018, for the third year in a row, Chugach was privileged to take home the awards for the largest team and the most money raised, with 315 members and $16,319 raised.
Since Chugach first started participating in this charity event, we have raised a grand total of $62,809 (including 2018). We are very proud to have so many people who deeply care about this cause. The generosity of our employees is, without a doubt, building community, and from a corporate level, supporting our employees in their efforts to end cancer is simply doing the right thing. We are, again, proud of the history we are creating with the Alaska Run For Women and how this legacy aligns with our Core Behaviors.
