On April 5, DynCorp International (DI) hosted a meeting in their Tysons, VA office for the 2016 Greater Washington Region Heart Walk’s Executive Leadership Team. DI CEO Lou Von Thaer is this year’s chairman of the Heart Walk, leading fundraising efforts with the goal of giving $2.5 million to the American Heart Association (AHA). The guest speaker at the meeting was Greg Flatt, a heart transplant recipient, who spoke about his incredible experience of being a healthy, athletic man who ended up needing a heart replacement after his own was destroyed by an autoimmune disease.
DynCorp International has been hosting events at their Tysons, VA and Fort Worth, TX offices to raise money for the AHA, as well as raising heart health awareness with activities such as walking challenges throughout their worldwide locations. The goal is to increase the health of employees as well as raising $200,000 for AHA.
The Greater Washington Region Heart Walk will be held on November 5, 2016 on the National Mall. More information can be found here.
