As a company, DWC devotes a great deal of energy toward our value: “Give Back, A Lot”. One of the charitable causes that this value is focused on is supporting the American Heart Association. Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the U.S. Chances are, you or someone you know has been touched by heart disease or impacted by the tragic loss of a loved one because of it. In our own DWC Family, we’ve lost a colleague, near and dear to us, who was struck down in the prime of his life by this silent killer.
Each year, DWC Family members commit to the cause of ending heart disease and stroke. We support the American Heart Association by raising money through donations and payroll deductions. In addition, DWCers participate in the annual Heart Walk that occurs each Spring.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Denver Heart Walk was held as a “digital event” where individual teams could hold their own personal Heart Walk. This year, DWCers gathered at Belmar Park here in the Denver Metro area. We walked, we raised money (nearly $8,000!), we celebrated the survivors and honored loved ones who have passed due to this deadly disease.
We look forward to a day when heart disease is a thing of the past! To help move toward this goal, here is a link to an informative article by the American Heart Association: 8 Things You Can Do to Prevent Heart Disease and Stroke
