Lorain County Heart Walk
Did you know that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of all Americans? In fact, someone dies every 38 seconds from this disease. The American Heart Association’s Heart Walk occurs yearly in 300+ cities across America to raise funds in support of various research and projects to help save lives from cardiovascular disease.
North Ohio Heart and Ohio Medical Group were proud to be a corporate participant in this worthy event and a sponsor for the Lorain County Heart Walk.
NOH-OMG raised $14,790 for this event! The total raised for Lorain County’s Heart Walk exceeded $94,000.
At the event, North Ohio Heart was presented with the Gold Start! Fit Friendly Award from the American Heart Association. This is the third year North Ohio Heart has been honored with this distinguished award that recognizes companies who understand the importance of a healthy workplace for their employees. Recipients of this award create a culture of physical activity in the workplace and are frontrunners in promoting a culture of workplace wellness.
Gary Zrimec, CEO at North Ohio Heart-Ohio Medical Group will serve as the 2013 Lorain County Heart Walk Chairperson. Gary currently serves on the board for the American Heart Association and is looking forward to his role in the heartwalk for next year!
