Kristy Nole, AVP Marketing & Communications, served as this year’s Ambassador for the American Heart Association of the Mohawk Valley’s Go Red for Women campaign. First Source was proud to serve as the Presenting Sponsor for this amazing organization that brings heart disease education and prevention information to women in our area.
As Ambassador, Kristy spoke at this year’s Go Red end of campaign luncheon. The transcript of her words is below. We hope they inspire you and our larger community to continue to do everything you can for this great cause. We are very proud of the AHA, and of Kristy, and we look forward to reducing heart disease among our friends and neighbors.
Fact: Heart disease is the number one killer of women.
Fact: 43 million American women are living with cardiovascular disease.
Fact: First Source Federal Credit Union is taking an active role in helping to stop this trend!
As a devoted supporter of the American Heart Association of the Mohawk Valley, we are constantly asking what more we can do to raise awareness and help fight the spread of heart disease.
This year First Source is proud to serve as the Presenting Sponsor of Go Red for Women.
In addition to providing solutions to improve your financial life, we at First Source are committed to the overall well-being of those we serve. Since we are locally owned and operated, it gives us great pride to be able to give back to the communities that make us who we are.
Sponsorship of the education and prevention of heart disease is just one of the many ways we do so.
We often use a quote by Margaret Mead as a source of inspiration in our community giveback.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful people can change the world. Indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.”
We are honored to partner with such a worthy organization and to be a part of such an amazing community.
Prevention is about choices. First Source chooses to make a difference.
In the fight against heart disease, may this luncheon represent a new beginning rather than a culmination.
Thank you for joining us in the fight.
