The Southeastern American Heart Association (AHA) has announced that IMC Construction President and CEO, Robert Cottone will serve as volunteer chair of the 2016 Philadelphia Heart Walk event November 5th at Citizens Bank Park.
The Heart Walk is the AHA’s biggest annual event, with a goal of raising $2.4 million for AHA programs and research.
Cottone will make an appeal to local businesses and community leaders to sponsor and form teams to join the Heart Walk. “I hope local companies support the Heart Walk to help raise funds for American Heart Association research, but also for the health of their own employees,” said Cottone, “Heart health should be a concern to all business leaders. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer and costs employers more than $3 billion annually. It just makes good business sense to support this cause as well as encourage a heart-healthy culture at the workplace.”
