The American Heart Association has named Mark Gray, president and CEO at ASRC Federal, the chair of the upcoming 2018 Greater Washington Region Heart Walk.
The annual event, set to take place Nov. 3 on the National Mall, aims to promotes physical activity and heart-healthy living and serves as the primary fundraiser for the American Heart Association.
Gray, who has been with ASRC Federal since 2014, has previously served on the Executive Leadership Committee for the Greater Washington Region Heart Walk.
“It is an honor and a privilege to chair the 2018 Greater Washington Region Heart Walk,” Gray said. “AHA and the broad government contracting community work tirelessly together to raise funds for, and awareness of, cardiovascular-related illnesses. In November of each year, the Heart Walk – a family event on the National Mall – is the culmination of many months of heightening awareness and fundraising for cardiovascular research. The walk inspires us all to participate, contribute and make a real difference in many, many current and future lives.”
The Heart Walk consists of a noncompetitive 3-mile walk or 1-mile walk.
Other event activities include Zumba by Bling it on Fitness, a “Kids Zone” and a “doggy parade.”
