March 2013

This May, Legacy Health is the sponsor of the American Heart Association’s 2013 Greater Portland & SW Washington Heart & Stroke Walk. Legacy CEO George J. Brown, M.D., is the chair for this signature event and hopes to lead 750 Legacy employees across the finish line in the Saturday, May 18, event.

Join a team, donate

Physicians are encouraged to join a hospital or clinic team, or Dr. Lewis Low’s Medical Staff and Quality team. Cash pledges and donations also are needed.

The American Heart Association (AHA) funds research to improve our knowledge about heart disease and stroke and save lives. The Heart & Stroke Walk is one of the key fundraisers supporting this effort. The AHA currently funds more than $9.8 million in research grants in Oregon and Washington, and Legacy is one of the many Oregon institutions that has received AHA research funding.

In addition to recruiting 750 walkers, Legacy has set a goal of raising $75,000 to help fight heart disease and stroke.
