Columbus Commons, 55 E. Rich St.
8:30 a.m. Opening Ceremonies
9:00 a.m. Official Start of Heart Walk
Last year, Team Bruner walked in memory of Bobbi Newman, who suddenly passed away months before the walk. This year we’re extending that support to Elford, as they’ve recently lost Greg Keener, a member of the Elford family, to a sudden heart attack. Being so closely affected by heart disease, our team will take a stand against heart disease and help make this event a great success. This year Team Bruner walks in special memory of Bobbi Newman & Greg Keener and dedicates our 2014 walk to each and every Bruner or Elford employee who has been affected by heart disease.
The Heart Walk, the American Heart Association’s signature community event, is a fun, family event and a great team building opportunity where participants of all ages join in a noncompetitive 1- or 3-mile walk to generate passion for the cause and raise funds for lifesaving heart and stroke research. With over 20 of us representing Team Bruner at last year’s walk, we had a BLAST and surpassed our fundraising goal by raising over $4,000 to help the American Heart Association build a healthier community and put an end to our country’s No. 1 killer.
Team Bruner’s 2014 goal is to raise $5,000 and have 25 walkers join Elford on August 23rd! We hope you will get involved however you can by:
- joining the team
- making a donation
- inviting friends and family to walk with us
- sending a few emails to ask for a donation
Every little bit helps! All of Bruner’s fundraising efforts will feed into Elford’s team goal of raising $15,000.
Check out Bruner’s company page to join the race or make a donation today! We encourage you to invite family and friends to join as well! There is no registration fee for this heart healthy event, but if you can’t make it to the race, please consider supporting the Bruner Team by making a small donation. All you need to do is select “join team” next to our company name. Once you have registered, I encourage you to personalize your heart walk page, make a personal donation or reach out to friends and family for support.
Someone dies from a heart attack every 38 seconds and heart disease kills more people than the next 5 leading causes of death combined; together, we can all make a difference and fight these deadly diseases.
