WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today participated in the ACLI Capital Challenge
, a 5k race for members of Congress, Executive Branch officials, journalists, Congressional staffers, and others. Gallagher won his division with a time of 19:46 to maintain his title of “Fastest Man in Congress,” which he has now won five consecutive times.
Rep. Gallagher’s first time competing in the ACLI Capital Challenge was in 2017, when he defeated defending champion Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR). Gallagher has not lost since.
“There are few skills more important to our kids’ success than financial literacy,” said Rep. Gallagher. “ACLI’s work with Junior Achievement USA helps teach students about how they can plan to save for retirement, and it’s always an honor to support this program by running in the ACLI Capital Challenge. I may be slowing down, but ACLI’s commitment to giving kids lifelong financial skills certainly is not.”
The race was held in support of Junior Achievement USA, an organization that works to enhance financial literacy and help young people have the personal finance knowledge they need to succeed in our economy.
Gallagher spoke with Macey Monfils, a Junior Achievement student from Shawano High School, about financial literacy last year. You can watch that video HERE
