For the second year in a row, Perspecta Inc. has raised more money in a single year for the 2019 Greater Washington Heart Walk than any company in the history of the event.
This year, the company raised more than $320,000 — $10,000 more than last year.
“Each year, our employees never cease to amaze me with their commitment to this cause and ability to exceed fundraising targets year-over-year,” said Mac Curtis, president and CEO of Perspecta. “Supporting the missions of our customers continues to be our top priority, but second to that is our commitment to the communities in which we live and work. I am incredibly proud of this accomplishment and look forward to a long-term partnership with AHA in the years to come.”
Employees across the country participated in local heart walks, while Perspecta offices held fundraising events. The company held its annual Perspecta Has Heart Charity Golf Tournament, which raised $254,000 for the cause.
Soula Antoniou, executive director of the Greater Washington Region American Heart Association, congratulated the company for continuing to break records.
“Your team’s continued success raises funds in support of critical cardiovascular research,” Antoniou said. “On behalf of the entire American Heart Association, we thank you for your steadfast dedication and support of our purpose.”
Perspecta’s involvement in AHA is just one part of its multifaceted social responsibility program.
Its Home of the Brave campaign included providing 650 volunteers and supporting 100 veteran facilities across the nation during the weeks surrounding Veterans Day. And Perspecta provides fundraising and volunteers to various science, technology, engineering and math events throughout the year.
