Credit Union ONE Partners with the American Heart Association

CUONECredit Union ONE partnered with the American Heart Association to sponsor two schools in Macomb County for the Grow A Healthy Heart Program. The two participating schools were Huron Academy in Sterling Heights and Huron Academy in Clinton Township.

As part of the program, participating students learn things such as, getting 60 minutes of exercise daily, eating fruits and vegetables with each meal, avoiding tobacco in all forms, reducing sodium intake and to choose water over sugar sweetened beverages.

Credit Union ONE also donated to the Physical Education Department of each school for the purchase of equipment, and also donated pencils and book marks to all students in the schools.

Working with the program for the day was Nichole Piche, youth market director from the American Heart Association, Brianna LaPeer, physical education teacher, Josh Sobczak, dean of students, and John Kozich, VP of community relations for Credit Union ONE.

“The children were excited and the enthusiasm and energy shown by the students at the all school assembly program presentation was amazing,” said Kozich. “This is a great way for kids to learn at an early age the importance of a healthy heart and healthy habits. The program by the American Heart Association surely is appreciated by the students and staff at the schools”.
