Marathon Consulting Sponsors the 2018 Hampton Roads Heart Walk

October 30, 2018

AHAMarathon Consulting, LLC, a leading provider of Information Technology and Digital Marketing solutions, headquartered in Coastal Virginia, was proud to be a sponsor for 2018 Hampton Roads Heart Walk. The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association's premier event for raising funds to save lives from this country's No. 1 and No. 5 killers - heart disease and stroke.

This is the second year that Marathon has sponsored the Hampton Roads Heart Walk and has participated in both the Peninsula and Southside events. The mission of the AHA is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. By 2020, they aim to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent — and to reduce deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent.


Harris Pezzella, President of Marathon Consulting, said “Marathon has always taken great pride in supporting various causes within the community, particularly those that support the health and wellbeing of our citizens. As a second year sponsor of the American Heart Association Heart Walk, it was a privilege to be involved in an amazing event with many of our friends in the corporate world and the thousands of individuals who participated and celebrated the best in the human spirit.”
