Inteva Gadsden Raises $6,489.55 for American Heart Association

May 2017

Inteva Gadsden has a lot of heart! In just under three months, the Gadsden team raised $6,489.55 for the American Heart Association (AHA). Their fundraising efforts were in conjunction with the 2017 Heart Walk which was held on May 5, 2017. This was the fourth time the Gadsden team participated in the AHA Heart Walk.

They hosted events such as raffles, a pizza lunch and a pancake breakfast in order to raise funds. At the pancake breakfast alone, they raised $500. To increase contributions further, Inteva Gadsden separated into teams to heighten the competition.
Inteva Gadsden is well-known for their contributions to the AHA. Their team received the first place award for “Overall Fundraising” at the 2017 Heart Walk. They now boast a large trophy as a prize.
The amount raised this year beats the total of $5,242.39 that was raised last year, which secured them a spot as one of the top 5 fundraising companies in Etowah County. The 2017 fundraising was done in about half of the amount of time as it took to raise last year’s funds.
