CCG Raises Awareness for American Heart Association

Nov 18, 2016


Convergence Consulting Group (CCG) is proud to share their endorsement of the American Heart Association (AHA) through sponsorship of the 2016 Heart Walk. On November 12, 2016, over 30 members of CCG raised awareness for heart health at the 2016 Tampa Bay Heart Walk. With over 5,000 companies and 30,000 individuals in attendance, the Tampa Bay Heart Walk successfully raised $3,739,139. That number continues to grow with donations being accepted through December.

 

CCG kept the competition rising between employees, who were divided into three fundraising teams: the front end visualization team (EBI), the back end data group (EIM), and the people that keep our lights on (Sales and Operations). We treasured this opportunity for our employees to become more involved in the community. In the months leading up to the Heart Walk, CCG held multiple fundraising events to raise awareness and engage our fellow Tampa technologists. On October 1st, over 35 attendees sweat for a cause at Cycle Bar South Tampa. With everyone on their stationary bicycles, it was quite the race to the $1,000 finish line. Employees also gave into their sweet tooth at an office-wide bake sale at the CCG Tampa headquarters in The Pointe. Here CCGers sold baked goods and encouraged employees from around the building to donate to AHA. These were just some of the many opportunities that CCGers volunteered in the Tampa Bay community for this worthwhile cause. We look forward to growing in our support of the American Heart Association in years to come.
