They Heartbeat of Sykes – 2014

More than one in three adults have some form of cardiovascular disease.  But, the good news is that 80% of heart disease and stroke can be prevented. Here are seven easy ways to make an effort to prevent heart disease:

  1. Get active
  2. Control cholesterol
  3. Eat better
  4. Manage blood pressure
  5. Lose weight
  6. Reduce blood sugar
  7. Stop smoking

There is an abundance of information out there to help you navigate through these steps.  One great place to start is the American Heart Association web site.

At SYKES, our goal is to help raise awareness and funds through our national Heartbeat of SYKES campaign.  We are proud to announce our participation, for the sixth year, as a corporate sponsor of the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk. Over the past five years, SYKES has raised over $345,600 (raising over $141,000 in 2011 alone)!  In 2009, SYKES took our campaign national with the theme The Heartbeat of SYKESThe Heartbeat of SYKES is serving our clients, our families, our communities and YOU.  Employees of SYKES are showing their support for this campaign and are taking an active role in making it a success.
