Take Heart Healthiness to “Heart”
Heart healthiness means so much to us at Businessolver, as well as to me personally. I am so proud to work for a company that takes heart healthiness to “heart.” But heart health isn’t just a fuzzy “nice to have” it goes way deeper. The importance of heart health hit home in a significant and real way when our co-worker and friend, Charron died in 2016. It hit home to me in a significant and real way in 2010 when my dad had a major heart attack followed by a quadruple bypass and then in 2014 he died of a stroke. All three of these heart related incidents could have been possibly prevented by more awareness and early heart health screenings. Early prevention and education about heart health to prevent more tragedies is why this campaign is so important to us. We don’t want to lose anyone else to a heart disease related illnesses.
We want everybody who participates in RAGBRAI this year to make sure that they get their heart checks early and understand their heart readiness to ride. This is a PERFECT time to get your annual physical and let your doctor know you are getting ready to ride RAGBRAI. We will be pushing a campaign at Businessolver to encourage our folks to get their annual check-ups in soon and make sure their hearts are strong. We would LOVE to hear your #whydoyouride story as well. Businessolver is partnering with the American Heart Association and Hy-Vee to make sure everybody on the ride has their heart covered!!
You can do your part by getting those hearts checked early. Visit the AHA website http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/ and find out what the risk factors are. Get those hearts ready for the ride of a lifetime! #heartsolver #whydoyouride #lifeiswhyIA
