A heartfelt thank you to the hundreds of employees who participated in last Friday’s Wear Red Day! In departments and locations across Meriter, employees made a statement about heart disease.
Approximately 250 employees took part in dressing casual on Friday by wearing jeans. The tally of $5 donations (and few more generous contributions) brought this year’s fundraising efforts to a total of $1,570!
Funds donated to the AHA are used for lifesaving educational programs and essential research into the causes, symptoms and treatments of heart disease. Donations directed to the Meriter Foundation will be used to support initiatives including national cardiovascular certification for Heart & Vascular nurses.
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of American women. Learn how Meriter Women’s HeartCare is helping women make heart healthy changes one day at a time. Visit meriterheart.com for more information.
