Heart Walk 2009

Yesterday was the Silicon Valley Heart Walk 2009 at De Anza College in Cupertino, CA. We gave away red squeezy hearts at the Sun booth. I have been working with Sheri Kaneshiro coordinating the Heart Walk fundraiser for Sun Microsystems on behalf of our sponsor Greg Papadopoulos, Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President of Research and Development. We were very proud that both of the invited inspirational speakers were from Sun:

    • Dr. Jim Mitchell, Sun Vice President & Fellow, Sun’s #1 fund raiser and one of the top fund raisers for this entire walk, 2008 Heart Walk Talk presenter at Sun, heart survivor
    • Donna Steelman, Fit@Sun Instructor, 2009 Heart Walk Talk presenter at Sun, heart survivor

We have been recruiting walkers and donors from both inside and outside of Sun. Even though the walk is over, you can still make a donation through the
Company Page of Sun Microsystems
. If you work for Sun, you can join the group donation match request. So far (before company matching funds are added in), we have raised $12,938 and sponsored over 50 walkers to benefit the American Heart Association. The American Heart Association is the largest voluntary health organization working to prevent, treat and defeat heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases.
