They biked, they kayaked, they lifted, they walked, they skateboarded, they ran, they mowed, they bellydanced, they water skied, they zumba'd...and they did all of this (and more) for The Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation's first Fitness Fundraiser!

Last week, 220 participants from across the state moved it for The Credit Union Movement, raising over $8,000 to help Wisconsin's credit unions better serve their members and communities.The "virtual" socially-distanced fundraiser was the first of its kind for The Foundation, keeping member safety in mind amidst the pandemic.  

Participants in the fundraiser took to social media to share their #FoundationFitFun pictures. Check out some of the submitted photos here. Those who submitted photos were also entered to win cash prizes, of which $2,500 were awarded. 

The Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation (The Foundation) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes the wellness of credit unions and the communities they serve. The Foundation's resources are used to promote credit union development, help educate credit union staff and volunteers, support programming to enhance financial literacy, and assist the credit union system in times of need.

We are grateful for the support of all who participated, as well as our corporate sponsors, CUNA Mutual Group, Corporate Central Credit Union, SHAZAM, LaMacchia Group, and Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago
