On Saturday, March 23rd, 2019, the team at HighPoint Advisors, LLC supported the American Heart Association by participating in the Syracuse Heart Walk. We gathered inside OCC’s SRC Arena with almost 3,000 supporters and survivors to celebrate a healthy lifestyle and raise money to help scientists discovery lifesaving breakthroughs. Even though it was a freezing, windy morning, the HighPoint team was proud to join Pat in supporting the Heart Association’s important work.
The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. A shared focus on cardiovascular health unites its more than 33 million volunteers and supporters as well as more than 3,400 employees. Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. As of the date of the walk the total amount raised by all teams was over $600,000 – and fundraising is still open for another couple weeks.

We would like to thank our clients, friends, families, corporate partners, and our team in their effort toward reaching this fundraising amount. We look forward to participating in this event again next year!
