UPHS is once again supporting the American Heart Association and their goal of reducing heart disease by participating in the 2004 American Heart Walk. This event will be held on Sunday, September 26 at Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park at 9 a.m. This is the Health System's fifth year of participation. In 2000, UPHS raised $794; in 2001, we raised over $22,000; in 2002, we raised almost $65,000 and last year we raised over $83,000 and had 573 walkers. The Health System’s goal this year is $100,000. In order to successfully meet this challenge, we are once again asking for volunteers to become Team Captains and/or walkers.
Please contact Denise Montgomery by July 30 (215) 662-7781 or (firstname.lastname@example.org) to express interest in becoming a Team Captain (or a walker). Thanks for your support of this very important cause that affects all of us.
