Life is Why We Walk

SIU Credit Union is proud to once again be participating in the Southern Illinois Heart Walk as a fundraising team and sponsor this coming October 3rd at John A. Logan College in Carterville, IL. The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s signature fundraising event for this region.

What’s your why?

We invite you to join us in the fun supporting this great cause. Why? Because “Life is Why”. With cardiovascular disease being our No. 1 cause of death, claiming the lives of over 1 in 3 individuals we want to make a difference in the American Heart Association’s mission to build healthier lives free from cardiovascular disease and stroke. And enable our members, employees and community to enjoy more of life’s precious moments with our family and friends.

How can you help? Join one of our Heart Walk teams as a fundraising Walker! You can join our teams by clicking on our Heart Walk team link. Pick your favorite team to join and help us be one of the Top 5 fundraising companies in the Heart Walk! You can also sign up at any of our branches and pick up a collection envelopes.

There is no registration fee to join, but we do encourage you to make a donation and collect from others. On October 3rd we will celebrate our success together at the Heart Walk at John A. Logan College. The event kicks off at 8 a.m. with Registration and Booth Activities. 9:30 a.m. is Opening Ceremonies, followed with a 2 mile walk at 10 a.m. and Closing Ceremonies just before 11 a.m. The event is a family friendly event that honors our survivors and victims of cardiovascular disease while teaching and celebrating healthy lifestyle changes.
