​Nelnet was the welcome sponsor at this year’s Lincoln Heart Walk for the second year in a row. This year’s event was a huge success for both Nelnet and the American Heart Association‘s (AHA) fundraising goals! Nelnet raised over $10,000 for the AHA! Nelnet was recognized as the top fundraising company at this year’s event, as well as the top company for walkers! A Nelnet associate was even recognized with an individual award. Rachel McCaslin won an award for her fundraising efforts by picking up a top walker award.

All Nelnet associates should be proud of their efforts this year. Bake sales, t-shirt sales, paper heart sales, a raffle, and even some departmental challenges were held to help propel Nelnet to be the top fundraising team.

As the Welcome Sponsor, Nelnet associates had a fun time greeting all participants and giving away Nelnet Frisbees. The Frisbees were a fan favorite with the kids and the pups that participated.

A special thanks to all the Heart Walk captains in recruiting walkers and assisting with fundraising efforts. Great job, Nelnet and way to represent!
