The Bill Howe Family of Companies Walking to Save Hearts with the AHA
Well-known San Diego Plumber preparing for 2014 American Heart Association Heart Walk W/ company fundraiser
August 13, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies has been a part of the local community since 1980. Beginning with just one plumber offering simple drain cleanings in Pacific Beach, they have added additional divisions in restoration & flood, heating & air as well as growing into one of the premier San Diego plumbers. Part of their success has been an unwavering dedication to cultivating a “pay-it-forward” spirit in their business, community and family.
The San Diego plumber has been a long-time supporter of the American Heart Association. Since 2010, they have been hosting a 90-day “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart drawing contest, which reaches out to children ages 5-12 and their families to promote healthy and active lifestyles. Entrants can win the grand prize, a $250 gift card to Toys ‘R Us, and four runners up also receive $100 gift cards. The company also sponsors the AHA “Beach” Ball each year with a donation of $25,000 annually. Additionally, they will be taking part for the 3rd year in the AHA Heart Walk this September.
The AHA raises funds throughout the year with several different events including the 23rd annual Walk, the Association’s premiere national walking event, which will take place on Saturday September 13 at Balboa Park. The Heart Walk promotes an active lifestyle and heart health, while also celebrating heart disease and stroke survivors. Individuals or teams raise funds, which go directly to lifesaving efforts in San Diego helping to fund stroke and cardiovascular research and education programs. The Bill Howe Family of Companies will be participating for the third time in 2014 and have raised their own fundraising goal to $5000 (the goal in 2013 was $2400) as well as inviting the entire company and their families to participate.
“We are especially excited for the Heart Walk this year,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We are entering into our third year of the Bill Howe wellness program and really seeing the impact of positive messaging and promotion of healthy active lifestyles in our own company.”
The event will be held on Saturday, September 13, 2014. Opening ceremonies begin early at 6:50 in the morning at Balboa Park. The event is pet and family friendly, and includes the “Miracle Mile,” a one-mile “Survivor” walk to honor all those who have been affected by heart disease and stroke.
