CompTRUST AGC Partners with American Heart Association

CompTRUST AGC recognizes that those who work within the construction industry are highly susceptible to heart disease and strokes.  It is not uncommon for many of our injured workers to suffer from high blood pressure, obesity, high cholesterol, and diabetes.  Such conditions can prolong recovery for injured workers. We also recognize that by the time you finish reading this letter, two Americans will have died from heart disease.  It is a sad fact that no one can escape being touched by heart disease or stroke in some way.

CompTRUST AGC is proud to announce that we have joined the American Heart Association’s (AHA’s) lifesaving mission of building healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.  To that end, we are participating in the AHA’s signature fund-raising event, the Heart Walk. In addition to raising vital funds and awareness for heart disease and stroke research and education, the Heart Walk engages companies to promote healthy lifestyles for children and adults.  The 2017 Birmingham Heart Walk event is committed to raise $750,000 through the efforts of our employees and our business partners. We hope that you will join us in the fight against cardiovascular diseases and stroke by raising these critical funds.

We encourage your company to join us by making a donation or join us in participating in their June 24th event in Birmingham.

Please consider contributing to the AHA’s efforts. Your tax-deductible contribution (Tax ID #135613797) will greatly enhance these collective efforts.

 

There is a pledge form attached for you to send to the American Heart Association.  We ask that all donations be made by June 16, 2017. Please make your contribution (if applicable), made payable to the American Heart Association, or you may donate online to the AGC team (www.birminghamheartwalk.org).

For any further assistance in participating in the event or making your contribution please contact Katye Fuglaar at Katye.fuglaar@heart.org or 205-510-1515.

We are proud to partner with the American Heart Association, an organization that continues to advance research in the treatment and prevention of this life–threatening disease. Your contribution can help us save more than 785,000 lives this year alone. Thank you so much.
