Nellcor Sponsoring Heart Walk

Nellcor Puritan Bennett is among the companies sponsoring the American Heart Walk, the Ameri can Heart Association's largest and most popular annual event. This year, the local Heart Walk takes place on Saturday, September 20 at Central Park in San Ramon, along with four other walks in Septem ber at other East Bay locations. 

"We're encouraging companies in Pleasanton, Livermore, and Dublin to come out in full force for the San Ramon walk," says Teri Rennia, division director of the American Heart Association. 

Support Health Education
The walk raises funds to support the Heart Association's research into cardiovascular disease as well as local community education programs. The event itself will feature the 5K walk, food, music, health fairs, and much more.

"We've been a supporter of the event for the last three years," says Kathy Call, manager of investor relations at Nellcor. "We are a medical device company and we as well as the American Heart Associa tion are devoted to quality health care."
