The American Heart Association hosts many walks across the U.S. as a part of their “Healthy for Good” campaign. This year, Tar Heel Basement Systems is sponsoring the 2017 Winston-Salem Heart & Stroke Walk and launching their “Home is Where the Heart is” campaign. As part of the company’s community outreach mission, this annual walk and fundraiser is a great reminder to get involved, get outside and get moving!
The walk and festivities will be held on Saturday, November 11th, 2017 at the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter of Bailey Park near downtown Winston Salem. The walk itself will be down Research Parkway and has 1, 2 and 4-mile options along the route. There will also be a lot of fun activities going on in Sponsorship Village (Bailey Park), including a kid zone with games and inflatables. This is also a dog-friendly event and after the walk, there will be a “Pooch Parade” across the main stage in Bailey Park. There will also be a food truck rally with healthy options and then a free concert in the park.
Dozens of our employees have already signed up with their spouses, family members, and children Joining the expected 7,000 walkers! Our donation goal as a team is to raise $2,500 which we feel is attainable and hopefully, we can surpass that! We will have a company tent set up in Sponsorship Village where you can meet our team, get some cool sponsor items, and information on how to make your home healthier. We also have a fun football toss game that we have donated to the kid zone. If you would like to Join our team or just donate to help us reach our goal, visit our Heart Walk team page here.
The money contributed to the walk and fundraising efforts by teams and sponsors like us goes to the American Heart Association to fund research projects and life-saving education. If you would like to know more about the AHA and their Healthy for Good movement, visit their website.
