Posted on: 4/9/2015 1:33 PM
On Saturday, March 28, members of the Lifetime Benefit Solutions Heart Throbs took part in the Syracuse Heart Walk. Overall, the team of eight from Lifetime Benefit Solutions raised just over $1100 for the American Heart Association.
Co-captains Lisa Maresca and Jennifer Trenca held a variety of fundraisers in the weeks leading to the Heart Walk including events for the Go Red for Women Wear Red Day in February and the wine tasting fundraiser at Greenwood Winery in Syracuse, NY. In addition, individual team members raised money in person and online.
Thousands of walkers and runners came to the SRC Arena on the Onondaga Community College campus to join the fight against heart disease. Participants had the choice to walk either one or three miles, or run a 5K. In addition to the run/walk, there was also a health expo. In all, the Syracuse Heart Walk raised over $500,000 to help fight heart disease and stroke.
