Montgomery County Heart Walk Chair Matt Davis leads 2021 Heart Challenge
The American Heart Association (AHA), the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on ensuring longer, healthier lives for all has named Matt Davis, Chief Executive Officer, HCA Healthcare Conroe, as Chair for the Montgomery County Heart Walk. Davis is charged with stewarding a $400,000 campaign fundraising goal to support the lifesaving work of the American Heart Association.
The Montgomery County Heart Walk is bringing us back together to reinvigorate heart healthy lifestyles. Heart Walk, which will be held in person on Saturday, November 6 at Northshore Park unites the community in celebrating health and honoring survivors. Davis will be joined by other likeminded county executives working to increase physical and mental health, combat burnout and promote community engagement.
The funds raised through the Heart Walk campaign further the mission of the American Heart Association to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Locally, the funds support community impact work to address nutrition security, hypertension and women’s health. These have been identified as key priorities in North Houston and propel the work to accomplish the Association’s 2024 Health Equity Impact Goal, reducing barriers to health care access and quality.
This year’s Montgomery County Heart Walk is sponsored by HCA Houston Healthcare Conroe, Kiewit / TIC, St. Luke’s Health The Woodlands Hospital, Waste Connections, 5 Point Credit Union, Memorial Herman The Woodlands Medical Center, and The Howard Hughes Corporation.
