Chugach is a proud member of the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce and was pleased to participate again this year in Military Appreciation Week. We hosted a table and shared it with local military members at the annual Military Appreciation Luncheon. Anchorage’s military members and their families are a huge benefit to our community, and we were pleased to celebrate them at the luncheon.

Alaska Run for Women
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.
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 pleased 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.
