  • Over $5,200 Raised for Children’s Hospital Orange County

    American First Credit Union (AFCU) donated over $5,200 to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) through their virtual CHOC Walk program. CHOC Walk in the Park presented by the Disneyland® Resort is a yearly walk that focuses on raising funds to support health care programs, education, and research for children in Southern California.
    The walk is normally held at the Disneyland® Resort of Anaheim, but was cancelled due to COVID-19. However, AFCU associates still wanted to support CHOC. Instead, AFCU associates participated by creating their own walk across a variety of locations, including hiking trails, beaches, and treadmills. Additionally, AFCU hosted internal virtual fundraisers to raise money for the cause, including a silent auction and creating care packages.
    CHOC Walk is a yearly 5K walk hosted by CHOC, CHOC strives to provide the highest quality medical care to children with life-threatening diseases and injuries. As a non-profit hospital, all donations and funding go directly to providing children with advanced and leading healthcare, education and research. This year, CHOC Walk directed support to critical services for   COVID-19 to assists families facing unique challenges.

    “The virtual CHOC Walk was a great opportunity to assist children in our communities,” said Jon Shigematsu, CEO and President of American First “It allowed us to support a cause everyone can get behind and through safe social distancing practices.”
