On Saturday, June 3rd, Homestead Funding Corp. participated in the 2017 Capital Region Heart Walk & Run at the University of Albany. Our team consisted of walkers, runners, and volunteers at the Homestead Sponsored Kids Zone! As part of Homestead’s sponsorship, we ran the Kids Zone, which included a kids oriented Zumba class led by Homestead’s Benefits Manager, Margaret Fitzgerald.
Homestead Funding Corp. has been a supporter of the American Heart Association for the last 21 years, and it is an organization that is near and dear to our heart. In particular, Jeff Mason, our Human Resources Director, has been leading our fundraising efforts since day one. In addition, our Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Daniela Bigalli, was part of the American Heart Association's Executive Leadership Team, which spearheaded this year's fundraising efforts. This year, we helped raise $24,485 through sponsorships and donations!
The Heart Walk raises vital funds for the American Heart Association’s research and education programs. Currently, the organization is investing more than $2 million in the local area to fund cutting-edge research, to provide professional and public education, and to make public advocacy efforts in federal, state, and local governments.
