On Saturday, April 14, Dixon Schwabl employees, family and friends participated in the 28th annual Rochester Heart Walk & Run.
Led by co-captains Megan Steenburgh and Shane Grant, the Dixon Schwabl team raised more than $11,500 for the American Heart Association, surpassing the team’s 2017 total donations by nearly $2,000. Funds were raised through various events, including personal fundraising, a Valentine’s Day cookie cake sale, National Wear Red Day and a bowling event at Radio Social.
In total, the Heart Walk & Run raised $760,000, with $15,980 raised through the second annual Media Challenge. iHeartMedia reclaimed its title as the highest fundraising media team, winning the challenge with $9,805 raised through its three participating stations.
All proceeds from the 2018 Heart Walk & Run will support the organization’s mission to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and strokes.
