The American Heart Association
The American Heart Association (AHA) Heart Walk is strongly aligned with our corporate health and wellness objectives and therefore significantly supported by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) team. Our employees helped to raise $170,000 for the 2013 Dallas Heart Walk, making BCBSTX one of the top corporate teams in Dallas. We are proud of the hundreds of employees, their families and friends who walked and raised funds to support such an influential and impactful organization as the AHA. The team’s efforts will go a long way toward supporting life-saving cardiovascular research and educational programs for the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
BCBSTX is proud to be the title sponsor of the City of Richardson Corporate Challenge. As a company whose mission is to promote the health and wellness of our members and communities, BCBSTX enthusiastically encourages employees to participate in this Olympic-style competition each year. In 2013, more than 200 BCBSTX employees participated in the Corporate Challenge, which involves as many as 22 athletic and non-athletic events held in late August through early October. All proceeds raised as part of the Challenge benefit Texas Special Olympics.
