AHA Heart Walk Teams and Team Captains Needed - Sign Up This Week!

Colleagues,

If you're on the fence about creating a Heart Walk team, this would be a great time to come on over!
 
The AHA Heart Walk is a community-wide event to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke prevention, and raise funds for research. It is also a major PR event for UAF, besides being fun and healthful. UAF has had very strong participation in recent years; this year, Chancellor Rogers and Sherry Modrow are chairing the event for the community so signing up would be especially meaningful.
 
Signing up a team online is simple and fast here. Our goal is to have 24 teams signed up this week, if possible. The time commitment is minimal, and can easily be done by any of your willing, enthusiastic team members.
 
Team "captains" are invited to a free luncheon next Monday at the Carlson Center. The following week, Chancellor Rogers and Ms. Modrow are hosting all team captains for coffee and pastries in their home. I'll provide more details separately.
 
Later, after your team is created, you can recruit walkers - employees, family, friends, etc. But for now, what is important is to go on line and get your team created. I have printed materials available as well, if desired.
 
Whether you decide to sign up or not, you can still help me out by spreading the word to directors of other departments and units that don't yet have a team.
 
I greatly appreciate your help. If you or your delegates need any assistance please don't hesitate to contact me!
