Employees at The Miriam Hospital recently received the American Heart Association Hospital Cup at a fundraising event to fight heart disease and stroke. Miriam Hospital President Arthur Sampson presented the trophy to Miriam employees Karen Joost, Jaime Longval and Monica Anderson at the Southern New England Heart Walk at Colt State Park in Bristol. The recipients served as company leaders and helped the hospital recruit 333 walkers, who raised more than $58,000 for the fight against heart disease and stroke.

“We are thrilled that so many local hospitals agreed to participate in this friendly competition for the Hospital Cup,” said Heart Walk Director Michelle Karn. “Health care providers see the impact of heart disease every day, and they understand how important it is to raise funds for cardiovascular research.”

Overall, 558 walkers represented Lifespan in the heart walk, raising more than $92,000. The American Heart Association uses the funds to finance scientific research, conduct public and professional educational programs, and advocate for public health. •
