We recently kicked off a season of fundraising for the American Heart Association’s Annual Heart Walk. We are showing our commitment to the health of agency staff and the community by pledging a significant fundraising goal of $25,000 in time for the walk this September! The pledge offers us a unique opportunity to come together as an agency and have fun while improving our health and raising vital funds for heart disease and stroke research. We are joined in our efforts by two valued agency partners – Advocate Health Senior Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer Kelly Jo Golson and Blue Cross Blue Shield Vice President & Chief Medical Officer Opella Finley Ernest, M.D., who are serving as chairs for the Heart Walk event.
We kicked off fundraising with a Heart Happy Hour at our office on May 8 where staff and agency partners and vendors heard inspiring stories about the American Heart Association mission and work. We will continue to raise funds and generate awareness over the next five months as we reach for our goal. Please help us by making a donation or joining our team. Online registration is available at www.metrochicagoheartwalk.org/hyconnect.
