Team Arthrex Raises over $14,000 for the American Heart Association's 2013 Heart Walk in Naples, FL


Team Arthrex Raises over $14,000 for the American Heart Association's 2013 Heart Walk in Naples, FL

Arthrex proudly supported the Collier County Heart Walk in Naples, FL once again this year as a cause sponsor and proved to be "Wild @ Heart" at the event on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013. The 5K walking event, held at Cambier Park in downtown Naples, was a great success with participation from more than 3,000 walkers, including nearly 100 Arthrex employees and their families. 

Medical Education Coordinator Lillie Simmons accepted Arthrex's Cause Sponsorship Award and her dog Watson proudly took home first place in the doggy costume contest! Close to $400,000 was raised to support life-saving heart disease and stroke research to help find a cure for our nation's No. 1 killer.

Team Arthrex raised more than $14,000 for the cause alone and was a top fundraising team in the county once again. Arthrex has sponsored the Heart Walk for many years; as a cause sponsor for the past three years, and will continue to do so for years to come. Arthrex is proud of all of its employees and their families who have donated their time, energy and funds in supporting this important event.
