The 2018 DC Heart Walk, held Nov. 3rd at the National Mall, has raised over $2M for the third consecutive year.
“Thank you for your commitment to our incredibly successful 2018 DC Heart Walk campaign. Your hard work and relentless effort have helped us raise $2,324,000 to date with time still remaining this year to eclipse last year’s record amount,” chair Mark Gray, president and CEO of ASRC Federal, said Tuesday.
“As you are all aware, funds raised will go towards life-saving research and education and will unquestionably make a meaningful impact in our local communities for years to come,” added Gray, who is a four-time Wash100 winner.
Jim Garrettson, founder and CEO of Executive Mosaic, commented, “It has been an honor to work alongside such a dedicated chairman as Mark Gray who has, in addition to leading dramatic growth in his own company, demonstrated that he also possesses a deep caring and concern for our community.”
Garrettson added, “Congratulations to J.P. Wiley, Ravi Dankanikote and the entire Heart Walk team for setting this record and making a difference in the fight against the number one killer of Americans.”
