Sonesta Hilton Head Island Lowcountry Heart Walk

April 17, 2013, Hilton Head Island, S.C. – The Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island team raised more than $2,100 this weekend during the 2013 Lowcountry Heart Walk, with all proceeds benefiting the American Heart Association. Sixteen Sonesta Resort Hilton Head employees participated in the annual Lowcountry Heart Walk on Saturday, April 13, and the three-mile course led participants through Hilton Head Island’s downtown area and beaches.
 
In 1999, the American Heart Association set a 10-year goal of reducing coronary heart disease, stroke, and risk by 25 percent by 2010. Support for fundraisers like the Lowcountry Heart Walk allowed the American Heart Association to reach its goals early and create new goals for 2020, focusing on helping Americans build stronger health and better quality of life. Strategies for reaching the new goals include:
  • Improving patient care
  • Advocating for better health
  • Reaching out to populations at risk
  • Raising awareness
  • Protecting the future
  • Educating Americans
 
“The American Heart Association has done a lot to make America a healthier nation,” said Jay Wiendl, general manager of Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island. “We’re proud to support them, and we’re planning to make this a yearly event for our Sonesta Resort team.”
 
The Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island officially opened on Thursday, April 4, after a $30M renovation of the entire resort. The resort is located at 130 Shipyard Drive in Hilton Head Island, S.C.
