Tuesday was a big day at News Channel 8 as we worked to raise at least $50,000 during our 2018 Heart Walk phone bank.
The phone bank ran from 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and we are so grateful to everyone who called in and donated.
The Heart Walk phone bank raised about $20,000 on Tuesday.
So far, we have raised a total of $35,345.
If we reach our goal, Kane’s Furniture will match it dollar for dollar and Pepin Distributing will add another $25,000.
That equals a huge impact for the Heart Association Tampa Bay.
Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in the United States and we want to help change that. Thanks, Tampa Bay!
