On Tuesday, May 17th employees of The Execu|Search Group came together to participate in the American Heart Association Wall Street Run & Heart Walk. The event consisted of a 5k competitive run and non-competitive walk aimed to raise awareness and funds to support the American Heart Association’s mission to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke—the nation’s number 1 and 3 killers, claiming nearly a million lives annually and more than 27,000 in New York City alone.
While the weather scared some participants away, the sun eventually came out to shine and it stayed clear for the remainder of the evening. Team Execu|Search was assembled after a team-member participated in last year’s event as part of New York Presbyterian’s team, and her co-workers expressed an interest in the event. The team felt it was a great opportunity to get the Execu|Search family involved in such a great cause and give back to the community! The race was a success and we want to say congratulations to Nkrumah Pierre, our sole runner who finished in an impressive 22 minutes!
The event was truly inspiring – celebrating life and supporting a disease that affects so many. So far we have raised almost $900, but donations are still being accepted! Please help us reach our goal of $1000 by contributing here!
