10/28/2013

Heart Walk 2013: Chilton Hospital employees and familiesEach year, the American Heart Association (AHA) hosts its “Heart Walk” and 5K run fundraiser in various locations around the country. The organization’s Morris County chapter held its 2013 event on October 13 at the Mack-Cali business center in Parsippany.

A total of 130 Chilton employees and their guests formed 11 teams, raising more than $10,000 for the AHA. The total is almost a 40 percent increase over last year’s donations. A portion of this year’s donations came from the hospital’s internal fundraisers held prior to the Heart Walk:

  • Bake Sale on September 30 ($316)
  • Autumn Basket Raffle on October 9 ($528)
  • Jeans Day on October 11 ($750)

“I’d like to thank everyone at Chilton who participated this year, whether at the hospital events, at the Heart Walk, or supporting one of our teams,” said Executive Director of Regulatory Affairs David Gourley, who is on the Morris County Heart Walk’s Executive Committee. “Through collaboration and compassion, we were able to make this year’s event another success for such a great cause. I’d also like to thank Thatcher McGhee’s Pub and Eatery for providing discount coupons to hand out during the Heart Walk at the Chilton table.”
