My firm is one of the original sponsors of this road race. In the first year, however, we were not sure the event would breakeven, let alone survive another year. Now in its eleventh year, this event will raise close to $500,000 for the benefit of the American Heart Association ["AHA"], and attract upwards of 2,500 runners. Fantastic!!
Learning about coronary heart disease and the mission of the American Heart Association [“AHA”], however, has been the most rewarding aspect of being involved with this great event. Education and awareness are critical elements to changing behavior and creating a healthier community for all, and your contribution will greatly help AHA further its mission.
Thank you for your consideration and please note that any contribution is greatly appreciated.
