Tim Gillis, managing partner of the Washington metro area offices at KPMG, has been named by the American Heart Association as chair of the 2020 Greater Washington Region Heart Walk.
The Heart Walk is an annual noncompetitive event that promotes physical activity through a one- or three-mile walk, helps raise funds for health initiatives and celebrates the lives of heart and stroke survivors, AHA said Thursday.
“Now, more than ever, we’re all looking for ways to connect with others, stay active and stay encouraged. So when the American Heart Association reached out and asked KPMG to chair the 2020 Heart Walk, I immediately thought about our culture of wellness and our commitment to community impact,” Gillis said. “Moreover, heart health depends on physical activity, stress management, mindfulness, and nutrition—the very same tools we all rely on to keep us strong and well in any health landscape.”
This year’s Heart Walk will be held on Nov. 7 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
