2019 Heart Walk and the Workplace Health Achievement Award
The County supported the fight against heart disease and stroke by walking and raising funds for the 2019 Bay Area Heart Walk at Coyote Point Park. Thanks to the support of executive sponsor, Supervisor David Canepa, 664 staff participated in the event and over $96,000 was fundraised, bringing us to nearly $1,000,000 raised since 1999.
We’d like to thank departments for their support and the 41 Heart Walk Coaches for their tremendous efforts recruiting walkers, raising the funds, and coordinating their teams.
The County of San Mateo Employee Wellness Program received silver level recognition by the American Heart Association (AHA) for the 2nd year in a row!
The AHA‘s Workplace Health Achievement Index measured the County on comprehensiveness and quality of our workplace health program, and the overall heart health of our employees.
