Alcoans in Motion

Getting fit and raising money for charity at the same time. Breaking a sweat never felt so good!

US$2,500

That’s how much we donate when Alcoa employees team for marathons, walkathons and other fitness events.

Some of the most popular ways to donate time, effort – and maybe a few pounds – are marathons, walkathons, bike rides, and other fitness events. Alcoans in Motion is our way of supporting Alcoa employees who participate and raise funds. We’ve structured the program to get as many people involved as possible.

  • Teams must have a minimum of five Alcoa employees
  • Friends and family are encouraged to participate
  • Alcoa Foundation will contribute $2,500 to the charity

 

Alcoans in Motion has been very successful. Take a look at some of the regional highlights to see how hard our team members have worked… and what a powerful impact they’ve had.
