In 2016, the first Bike to the Beat event raised $25,000 for myTeam Triumph, a local charity that creates a community, which embraces, celebrates and empowers those with diverse abilities. Bike to the Beat: Track 2 benefited myTeam Triumph and the Refuge Foundation for the Arts. In one year, our event doubled from about 1,500 participants to over 3,200 bikers!
Our Make Music Happen initiative helps provide musical opportunities to children in our community. In 2016, we began collecting cash donations during events that we sponsor. Initially, we are working with the Appleton Area School District to get instruments in the hands of children who would normally be unable to participate due to the funds needed to rent an instrument. Watch for more opportunities to help this great cause.
Over the last 17 years, the Fox Cares Foundation has raised over $275,000 through Fox Communities Credit Union’s silent auction held at our employee holiday party. More than 450 employees, guests and board members attend this annual event.
