The winners of the Howe Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest have been announced. Congratulations to the grand prize winner, Summer Stewart, Age 12 and to the three Runners-up: Ella Constable, Age 5, Noah Rico, Age 9, and Mackenzie Lurkins, Age 7. We receive a lot of fantastic entries and would like to thank all the children who participated.
We pride ourselves on being a family-owned and operated company and we strive
to encourage all of our employees and their families to live active and healthy lifestyles. The “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest was our way to augment our sponsorship of the American Heart Association’s 2011 Heart Beach Ball, as we wanted to find a way to encourage parents and children throughout San Diego County to start healthy habits at home. We’ve been serving the San Diego County for over 30 years and truly care about our community’s health. After all, healthy hearts and healthy pipes make happy homes.
Today, one in three American kids and teens are overweight or obese. Not only are obese children more at risk of health problems including high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, but they’re also more prone to low self-esteem, negative body image and depression. San Diego is no exception to this statistic either; heart disease is the number one cause of death in San Diego County.
Thank you to everyone who made this contest such a success. Please continue to reference the information on our website, provided by the American Heart Association, for tips on how to stay active and healthy.
