Never Stop Playing. Think Elementary School. Think Field Day. It was the Best Day Ever as you had fun and competed with fellow students in silly, active games. The American Heart Association is excited to offer a way to put some PLAYspace into your workplace while raising critical funds to end heart disease and stroke. As the number 1 killer of Americans, no one can escape being touched by heart disease or stroke in some way. The American Heart Association is dedicated to creating healthier, longer lives, and Atrium Medical Center has committed to help raise $45,000 in support of their lifesaving mission through the Butler/Warren County Field Day on Saturday, Sept. 25. Your company is invited to be a part of Field Day – and help your employees alleviate workplace stress and burnout and better their heart health through a campaign of having fun and giving back. ? Start your own company team or contribute to an existing team at www.PlayFieldDay.org/ButlerWarren Funds raised from Field Day go towards cardiovascular and stroke research grants to further save lives. You and your employees are invited to come onsite Sept. 25 starting at 9:00 a.m. to join the fun. Beyond the gameplay, Atrium Medical Center will host health education booths. This is a great, free way for your employees to know their numbers and take the first steps toward a healthier life. Why Your Support Is Needed
