NVFC Staff Walk for Heart Disease

NVFC Staff Walk for Heart Disease

Tuesday, 04 November 2008

On November 1, staff members from the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) participated in a 3.1-mile American Heart Association (AHA) Start! Greater Washington Heart Walk, held on the National Mall in Washington, DC. The event was one of more than 450 Heart Walks the AHA is holding across the country this year to raise money to fight the nation’s number 1 and number 3 killers - heart disease and stroke. The goal of the Greater Washington Heart Walk was to raise $2 million for heart disease and stroke research.

The NVFC actively fights against heart disease in the fire and emergency services through the NVFC Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program. In addition, the NVFC is recognized as a Start! Fit-Friendly Company by the AHA for its well-rounded Employee Health and Wellness Program, which fosters a culture of fitness, nutrition, and overall healthy behavior in the workplace and beyond.

“The focus topic of the NVFC Employee Health and Wellness Program for October was fitness,” said Maggie Wilson, Director of Health and Safety. “The walk was a great way to bring the staff together in a beneficial fitness activity while supporting the longtime NVFC goal of combating heart disease.”
