Local Credit Union Raises Funds for the American Lung Association

AustinTruWest® Credit Union donated $2,500 for the American Lung Association through the Fight for Air Climb which took place on May 14.

More than half the staff from the Austin-based TruWest branches joined 40 other teams climbing stairs at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas or walking in their local communities to raise awareness and funds to find a  cure for  lung disease.

“TruWest has supported the American Lung Association for many years, and we are proud of our team for walking  together to raise awareness and funds for such an important cause – a healthier future, clean air and vital research to save lives,” said Alan Althouse, president and CEO of TruWest Credit Union.

For several months leading up to the event TruWest Credit Union team members trained and supported each other’s fundraising and fitness goals, working together to make the lifesaving donation possible.

Nearly 37 million Americans live with a chronic lung disease like asthma and COPD. Additionally, Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer of both men and women in the United States.  Approximately two-thirds of people diagnosed with lung cancer have never smoked. The American Lung Association combats lung diseases by conducting lung health education, lifesaving research, and providing other critical programs and services.  Its work includes a $25 million commitment to end COVID-19 and defend against future respiratory viruses.
