“The Savings Race has been my saving grace.” –First Edition Winner, Kristy Roy

“The Race has been our miracle. It has blessed our family tremendously. The Race has changed our outlook on our future and changed our family tree. We are now able to dream things we never thought possible before the eCO Savings Race.” –Second Edition Winners, The Dodds

Many Americans struggle with being caught in a cycle of living paycheck to paycheck. Debt becomes a term associated with fear and anxiety, and savings can seem like an unreachable dream. eCO Credit Union wants to help members and the community break the cycle and live a life of financial peace.
During the first eCO Savings Race, eCO Credit Union helped four individuals begin the process of improving their finances. After eight months of education, coaching, and sacrifices, participants improved their financial pictures by more than $44,000! The Second Edition of the eCO Savings Race just came to a close. Through the Second Edition, three families improved their financial pictures by more than $75,000!

We are currently in the process of selecting families for the eCO Savings Race, Third Edition. Each family will be paired with two eCO coaches to form a team. Teams will work together to create strategies and goals to improve the families’ financial pictures. All Savings Race families will complete the Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University program and attend eCO Savings Race University courses. Throughout the journey, they will post updates to the Savings Race site to keep the public updated on their savings progress. WIAT 42 will also follow the families, providing regular updates and sharing practical tips from the teams.
After eight months, the winner of the eCO Savings Race Third Edition will be declared! Along with healthier finances, the winner will also receive the $10,000 GRAND PRIZE! All runner-up teams will receive $2,000 just for participating..
