Knight Federal Participates in the Annual Heart Walk at UCF
Braving a cold morning, team Knight Federal with their family and friends, took part in the annual American Heart Association (AHA) Heart Walk on Saturday, November 3 at the University of Central Florida campus.
The team raised more than $1K in support of its goal to support the AHA in its fight to prevent heart disease and stroke, while funding research and education to save and improve lives.
“Organizing for our first Heart Walk this year was a great honor. Many employees in our organization have been touched by heart disease in some way, so it was a great event to give back and celebrate life. I look forward to doing it again next year and raising even more for this great cause,” says Samantha Mooney-Outlaw, Knight Federal’s Contracts Administration Manager.
From humble beginnings, the AHA has grown into the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke for nearly 100 years. A shared focus on cardiovascular health unites more than 33 million volunteers and supporters as well as more than 3,400 employees. Learn more about the AHA’s impact over time.
Heart disease is the number one killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. The AHA is working to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Its mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.
The AHA’s size and scope lets the organization have real impact. The AHA has invested more than $4.1 billion in research, more than any United States nonprofit organization. Read more about the AHA’s life-changing funded research breakthroughs.
