San Diego, September 20, 2011 – Union Bank, N.A., joined the American Heart Association (AHA) Saturday, September 17 for the 20th Annual San Diego Heart Walk to raise awareness and funds to fight heart disease and stroke. Through the partnership, Union Bank and the AHA continue a groundbreaking and successful alliance that has helped fund life-saving research and educated tens of thousands of people on how to live healthier lives. The event, which included a 5K walk or run, a one-mile "Survivor Route" walk, kids’ fun zone, free health screenings and CPR demonstrations, attracted nearly 9,000 people.  Among the participants at the San Diego Heart Walk were Union Bank’s Senior Vice President and Market President George Kaye and Union Bank’s Randy Truax, a Union Bank employee and a heart disease survivor.

 
“Our sponsorship of the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk in San Diego has been a tremendous opportunity for Union Bank to show our employees, our customers, and the community that at Union Bank, we are bona fide leaders when it comes to workplace wellness,” said Kaye. “We were so proud to help support this great cause and walking with colleagues was an inspiration for us all.”
