DCP Midstream describes itself as one of the largest marketers of natural gas and natural gas by-products in the United States. They operate in 26 different states including Colorado.
DCP Midstream employees were able to raise $590,000 for the Denver Heart Walk, most of it through a charity golf tournament.
Company employees do other fundraising at their other locations, and those efforts are expected to bring in $730,000 to the American Heart Association (AHA) cause.
According to AHA executives, millions of people participate in Heart Walks around the country every year. Each walker is asked to raise money from friends and family, coworkers, business acquaintances, association members, etc.
The money that is raised each year will be used to fund research, education and advocacy efforts of the American Heart Association.
