Region – SpencerBANK employees recently participated in National Wear Red Day by raising money to benefit the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement.
On Feb. 5, employees were offered the opportunity to wear jeans and the color red in exchange for a $5 donation to the American Heart Association. This year, SpencerBANK employees generously donated $520.
“We are pleased to support the Go Red for Women movement,” said K. Michael Robbins, president and CEO of SpencerBANK. “Once again, our employees have come together to help increase awareness of heart disease in women.”
Since the first National Wear Red Day in 2003, the American Heart Association has made tremendous strides in reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke in women. Funds raised by “going red” support educational programs that increase risk awareness, as well as critical research and studies on cardiovascular health.
