On Saturday, April 6, Dixon Schwabl employees, family and friends participated in the 29th annual Rochester Heart Walk & Run. Our team had an extra special reason to participate this year and walked in honor of our beloved colleague Sarah Jones, who passed away in August 2018 from heart disease.
Dixon Schwabl raised more than $7,400 for the American Heart Association, surpassing the team’s original goal of $5,000. Funds were raised through various events, including personal fundraising and a Valentine’s Day cookie cake sale.
In total, the Heart Walk & Run raised more than $763,000, with more than 7,000 people participating. All proceeds from the 2019 Heart Walk & Run will support the organization’s mission to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and strokes.
