Ashe County Heart Walk sponsored by the American Heart Association

American Heart Association

For many years, SkyLine has supported local efforts to benefit the American Heart Association in its fight against heart disease and stroke. Coronary heart disease is the number-one cause of death in the United States, and stroke is the country's number-three cause of death and a leading cause of serious disability.

Each year, SkyLine provides the phone bank for the Ashe County Heart Auction, which helps to raise thousands of dollars, and SkyLine has been a sponsor of the Alleghany County Heart Auction and other fund-raising efforts as well. For the past several years, SkyLine's Ashe County employees have fielded a team for the annual Heart Walk in Jefferson, and through various fund-raising activities, the Ashe Heart Walk team has raised over $2,000 a year for this effort.
