In September, Oncor employees participated in their 9th consecutive Dallas Heart Walk – but for the first time ever, the event was a digital experience. Participants watched a virtual welcome event, walked in their own neighborhoods and tracked their activity through the Heart Walk app.
About 2,500 Oncor employees walked with their families in their neighborhoods, in support of the American Heart Association (AHA) and their commitment to fight against heart disease and stroke. Oncor also held a virtual celebration for employees, led by CEO Allen Nye.
Sempra Energy and its operating companies are committed to investing in the communities they serve. At this year’s Heart Walk, Oncor demonstrated this commitment by ranking in the top 5 for the most charitable organizations in North Texas as employees raised an impressive $85,000 for the AHA. With additional support from generous suppliers who donated $320,000, along with Oncor's platform sponsorship, their grand total for 2020 reached $575,000. Overall, since 2011, Oncor and its partners have raised close to $6.3 million for the AHA.
