A sea of green shirts swept over the Wilmington Riverfront for the American Heart Walk on Sept 9. More than half of this year’s walkers hailed from Christiana Care-sponsored teams.

Walking teams from Christiana Care raised more than $50,000 for the 21st annual Heart Walk, Sept. 9 at the Wilmington Riverfront.

More than 1,000 Christiana Care employees, along with their families and friends, took part in the event, led by this year’s chair, Ed Goldenberg, M.D., Preventive Cardiology and Lipid Center medical director, and by Honorary Chair Robert J. Laskowski, M.D., Christiana Care president and CEO.

Congratulations to Team Malatesta, led by Kim Tran, director of Christiana Care’s Weight Management Center/Bariatric Surgery Program, for finishing first in both the walker and fundraising categories. Congratulations, also, to the nine Facilities and Services team captains who collectively raised more than $12,000 and recruited 183 walkers.
