Texas Mutual employees raise $55,000 through annual Heart Walk campaign

Austin Heart Walk 2021

For the seventh consecutive year, employees across our offices united to support a tradition close to our heart. At Texas Mutual, we’ve always shared in the American Heart Association’s (AHA) mission of building healthier communities and showed our spirit for giving back through our company-wide fundraising campaign. Our employees raised over $55,000 in support of the annual Austin Heart & Stroke Walk, to help fund cardiovascular research and the AHA’s life-saving work in the communities we serve.

While continuing to navigate working remotely and helping keep our communities safe, our employees found creative ways to step up for the AHA. From hosting our own version of The Newlywed Game show to partnering with Tiff’s Treats on a Cookies for Community fundraiser, we rallied support for a great cause.

As part of our fundraising each year, we also look to donate our retired fleet vehicles to the AHA for auctioning off. We were happy to donate five fleet vehicles this year with all proceeds benefiting the AHA.

With this year’s Austin Heart & Stroke Walk returning to an in-person event, our employees enjoyed the opportunity to walk together as one community. We showed our Heart Walk spirit with newly designed t-shirts, one of our campaign fundraisers, and connected with fellow heart walkers along a 1-mile path starting at the Long Center.

Hands-on CPR training

As a Life is Why sponsor, we support the AHA’s education programs and hands-only CPR training throughout the year. With 88% of cardiac arrests likely to occur at home, we recognize the importance of helping Austinites learn this life-saving skill. At the Heart Walk, we sponsored hands-only CPR training to give attendees the opportunity to learn and practice how to help save a life.

For many of our employees, this cause hits close to home. Whether knowing a loved one who has been diagnosed with a heart condition or being personally affected, we’re grateful for the AHA’s work in helping heart survivors thrive. It’s their commitment to helping each person lead a healthy life that gives families the opportunity to celebrate more birthdays and milestones with loved ones.

Together, with partners like the AHA, we’re building a stronger, safer Texas. As the state’s leading provider of workers’ compensation, we’ve seen firsthand how workers who are healthy on the job are safer and more productive. That’s why we share in the AHA’s mission and continue finding new ways to help strengthen our communities through our TXM for Texas community program.
