Giving VCU employees the wellness resources they need to be healthy both on and off campus

VCU is excited to join the 2019 American Heart Association’s Heart Walk on October 5th at Monroe Park led by our very own Dr. Peter Buckley, the Dean of VCU School of Medicine. Let’s support him in building a healthier Richmond! To join the effort, please click HERE. We are looking forward to seeing a sea of black and gold this October!

The American Heart Association’s Heart Walk is a wonderful opportunity for our company to pull together and have a meaningful impact by raising money for an organization that supports such a worthy cause. As the Chair of this year’s Heart Walk, VCU Health has pledged to raise $55,000.  To achieve our Fundraising goals, we need our employees to actively participate so let’s get started!
