Chugach was proud to be a part of the 2019 Alaska Run for Women. Celebrating 27 years, the Alaska Run for Women is one of the largest all-women runs in the country. Money raised from donations goes to fund breast cancer research, education, outreach, prevention, and early detection. Team High Voltage raised over $1,000 for the 2019 event.

Alaska Run for Women
Running for heart health
Chugach employees supported the 2019 Alaska Heart Run with Team High Voltage taking part in the walk/run. High Voltage had a good showing among the teams, raising more than $800 for the American Heart Association. The annual event is one of the first runs of the season in Anchorage and brought out 3,400 runners and walkers this year.
Chugach was please to participate in the 2019 Anchorage Go Red for Women Conference & Luncheon. The annual event focuses on preventing heart disease and stroke by promoting healthy lifestyles, building awareness, and raising money to support research and education initiatives. According to the American Heart Association, over 92 million American adults live with some form of cardiovascular disease, many of which can be prevented with healthy lifestyles, preventative care, and healthy eating.
Students tour power plant
A 7th grade science class from Hanshew Middle School recently toured our newest power plant, the Southcentral Power Project (SPP), as part of a statewide contest. Susan Tifental’s third period class was the winner of the 2018 Power Pledge Challenge. As part of the grand prize, the students got a tour of SPP.
Each October, Chugach partners with the Renewable Energy Alaska Project and several Alaska utilities in the Challenge, teaching students across Alaska about energy use and energy efficiency. In addition to the tour, Mrs. Tifental also won $1,600 worth of supplies for her classroom. For more information, go to http://www.akenergysmart.org/get-in…/power-pledge-challenge/
