Focus on Health
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 90 million Americans live with chronic illnesses. Every year, seven out of 10 Americans—more than 1.7 million people—succumb to a chronic disease.

DIRECTV works with local communities to support causes that promote healthy lifestyles and prevent life-threatening illnesses. Such programs include:

Fast Forward to a Cure
Fast Forward to a CureOur flagship health-related program, Fast Forward to a Cure, raises significant dollars through fitness-focused charitable walks. We encourage DIRECTV employees nationwide to team up and get involved in annual 5K run/walks that the company sponsors.

Although Fast Forward to a Cure events take place in different cities, participating teams all share the same goal: to raise money and awareness for a good cause. Our DIRECTV blue is easily spotted at these events, as "Team DIRECTV" wears matching shirts emblazoned with our logo and the "Fast Forward to a Cure" slogan.

Here are some of the Fast Forward to a Cure events DIRECTV employees are participating in this year:

Relay for Life: American Cancer Society, Huntsville, Ala.
Revlon Run/Walk For Women: Entertainment Industry Foundation (supporting women's cancers), Los Angeles, Calif. and New York City, N.Y.
American Heart Walk: American Heart Association, Denver, Colo. and Missoula, Mont.
Women's Fitness Celebration: St. Luke’s Regional Medical Center, Boise, Idaho
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation: Walk to Cure Diabetes: Tulsa, Okla.

Blood Drives
For the nearly 5 million people who receive transfusions every year, blood donations can mean the difference between life and death. DIRECTV helps maintain the nation's blood supply by holding on-site blood drives several times a year and providing employees with the ability to donate at work.

Employee Gift Matching Program
To encourage and recognize our employees' philanthropic interests, DIRECTV matches employee donations to U.S.-based 501(c)(3) organizations dollar-for-dollar (up to $20,000 per employee per year).
