As honorees at the recent 17th Annual Long Island Go Red for Women Luncheon, the women of SterlingRisk raised more than $63,000 for the American Heart Association and its efforts to prevent heart disease and stroke. The announcement was made by SterlingRisk Chief Operating Officer Marci Waterman, who was among the nine Honorees.
“I couldn’t be more proud of my fellow Honorees and colleagues at SterlingRisk who worked so hard to make sure we met and surpassed our fundraising goal,” said Waterman. “We took the responsibility very seriously, turning to friends, family, business associates, carrier partners, and others to help us raise these crucial funds. Along the way we focused a majority of our community service work on the Go Red initiative, hosting everything from walkathons and penny wars to raffles and potluck days. Each SterlingRisk Honoree also created her own fundraising page, raising thousands of additional dollars. Equally important, the experience enabled us to educate people on heart disease and stroke. I am confident our efforts will make a real difference and inspire everyone to make healthier choices in their lives.”
