Recently, members of the CCNY Tech team participated in America’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk. CCNY Tech supports local events and community involvement. We would like to use this opportunity to increase awareness and support for the fight against heart disease, as well as to encourage participation in events such as this.
On Saturday March 4th, members of CCNY Tech’s sales team – Matt Skinner, Chris Baris and Joe Coffay participated in the 43rd annual America’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk. The guys braved frigid race time conditions and completed the 5 mile run in what they claim was a “respectable”, but still yet to be revealed time.
They ran as members of Team Jayden – Jayden Pollard, a now happy and excitable 5 year old was born with four holes in his heart. He had his first open heart surgery at 6 months old and will forever be a heart patient, or perhaps more appropriately put – heart warrior!
Heart Walks across the country support children and adults alike in the fight against heart disease, which ranks as the United States number one killer. In 2016 there were 279 walks across the country. Utica finished with the 26th most money raised!
