Our long-time supporter Union Bank was named the No. 1 Heart Walk team in the nation for 2012. Its employees, family, friends and customers collectively raised nearly $538,000 to fight heart disease and stroke last year. Union Bank has served as a role model to others in promoting the health of its employees and communities for more than 20 years.
The bank embodies what it means to have a community-based approach with health initiatives and currently is the My Heart. My Life. regional platform sponsor. Some 4,500 walkers represented Union Bank in 216 Heart Walks across the country last year. This is the second time the bank has earned distinction as the nation’s top Heart Walk team.
The firm’s staff around the country has stepped up to serve as event chairs and on local executive leadership teams. Pierre Habis of Los Angeles, Senior Executive Vice President and head of Community Banking, is a Western States Affiliate board member.
Congratulations and a sincere thank you to Union Bank for its leadership and continued support.
