City Light Employees Raise $10,000 in Heart Walk

Seventy Seattle City Light employees have raised more than $10,000 for The American Heart Association with their participation in the Puget Sound Heart Walk.

Seattle City Light is proud of its 70 employees who participated in the Puget Sound Heart Walk.

City Light had 12 teams of walkers who have raised $10,610 so far, which leads all City of Seattle departments. Overall, City teams to date have raised $38,548.

The event at Seattle Center attracted about 10,000 participants who took a heart healthy stroll through downtown. Money raised by the event will help the American Heart Association improve patient care, advocate for better health, reach out to at-risk populations, raise awareness, help children develop healthy habits, and educate Americans about the risks of heart disease and stroke.

Among the organization’s goals here in Washington:

•     Give 25,000 Washingtonians a plan to live better through the My Life Check Assessment (an online tool that calculates your personal heart score in just a few minutes).

•     And save lives by training more than 30,000 members of our community on essential CPR skills.
