On September 27, more than 1,000 community members walked to support the American Heart Association's 2013 Heart Walk. This annual event that brings communities together to raise funds and celebrate the progress in the fight against America's No. 1 and No. 4 killers: heart diseases and stroke, respectively.
The event, which took place at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, 600 South Clyde Morris Blvd in Daytona Beach, raised approximately $156,000 to help fund the fight against cardiovascular disease. Of that, Florida Hospital Volusia/Flagler contributed more than $56,000, which is approximately 35 percent of the event’s total funds raised.
“The Heart Walk is truly aligned with Florida Hospital’s mission of promoting health and wellness,” said Ed Noseworthy, Florida Hospital Fish Memorial CEO. “It was an honor and a pleasure to serve as the event chair for the American Heart Association's 2013 Volusia/Flagler Heart Walk.”
Florida Hospital Volusia/Flagler was the highest company sponsor, and throughout the year, employees found a variety of creative ways to help raise funds for the American Heart Association’s annual event. From hosting a royal baby shower, to competitive chili cook-offs and bowl-a-thons, as well as soaking hospital leadership in a dunk tank, employees found fun ways to raise the funds to battle cardiac disease.
