Columbian Logistics Network Employees Wear Red to promote Heart Health !

On February 5th, Columbian Logistics Network employees participated in the American Heart Association (AHA) ‘Wear Red Day’, an event to raise awareness and funds to fight women’s heart disease. Columbian Logistics employees at all locations, including Columbian Distribution Services, Kentwood Campus, Grand Rapids DC, and Grandville DC, sported red to help support the cause, part of a month long program to promote Heart Health.

According the the AHA, almost 34% of American women die from heart disease. ‘Wear Red Day’ is an effort to call attention to and educate people about the disease. The AHA provides resources to help make the changes in diet, activity and lifestyle to live a heart healthy life.
