The Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD), a public agency that supports various health-related community programs and services in San Diego’s East County region, will continue its support of the American Heart Association’s San Diego Heart Walk, to be held Saturday, Sept. 15 in Balboa Park. The GHD board of directors recently approved a $5,000 donation to Grossmont Hospital’s 2012 Heart Walk team of walkers. GHD has supported the American Heart Association for the past 15 years.
The hospital’s walk team is expected to include more than 2,500 employees, family members and friends of Sharp HealthCare. The team is typically one of the largest at the Heart Walk event, according to Sandy Pugliese, Sharp Grossmont Hospital community relations manager. The 21st annual San Diego Heart Walk is expected to draw more than 10,000 walkers. For more event information, visit www.sdheartwalk.org.
