Rumford seeks Lifestyle Change Award nominations
RUMFORD -- Do you know someone who has changed his or her lifestyle to improve heart health?
The Rumford Heart Walk organizers are accepting nominations for the 2013 Lifestyle Change Award that will be presented at the walk on Sunday, September 15 at Hosmer Field.
The American Heart Association and the Rumford Heart Walk want to recognize people who have made positive changes to improve their quality of life and health: people who have begun a walking or exercise program, people who have altered their diet to more heart-healthy foods; people who have quit smoking. Maybe you know someone who has done all three!
Friends, co-workers, or relatives can nominate positive role-models for the Lifestyle Change Award. People may even nominate themselves. To get nomination forms contact the River Valley Healthy Communities Coalition office on River Street in Rumford. You can reach Sandy Witas, the Coalition’s Heart Walk Team Captain, at email@example.com or by calling 364-7408.
The nomination form is simple to fill out. It asks for the phone number and e-mail of the nominator and the nominee and details about the ways the nominee has changed his or her lifestyle. Deadline for submitting the form is by, September 6.
To participate in the Heart Walk–Rumford go to the Central and Western Maine Heart Walk website at www.centralmaineheartwalk.org and register to form your own team, to join an existing team or to walk as an individual or call 364-7408 for more information.
The Heart Walk is sponsored nationally by Subway, regionally by Hannaford Supermarkets, and locally by Franklin Savings Bank, River Valley Healthy Communities Coalition, Rumford Hospital, and Oxford Federal Credit Union.
