The members of HensonFuerst do more than fight for their clients-they’re also fighting for the millions of people affected by heart disease, the nation’s leading killer. For the third year in a row, the firm’s members walked to raise funds and awareness during the American Heart Association’s Start! Heart Walk in Rocky Mount on Saturday, Oct. 24. The team raised more than $1,000 this year, bringing the total for the past three years to nearly $3,000!
“We want to show everyone how strongly we feel about being heart healthy and keeping fit,” attorney David Henson said. “We’re working together to raise money for research and encourage our friends, family, and neighbors to lead healthier, longer lives.”
Leading by Example
The members of HensonFuerst know the importance of heart health at any age. Whether it’s participating in triathlons, running for a cause, or cycling 100 miles, many firm members-whose ages range from 18 to 70-have participated in athletic events to raise money for various charities. To recognize the importance of being healthy as well as giving back to the community, the firm established the HensonFuerst Health Initiative to encourage the community and firm members to prevent injuries, promote health and fitness, and aid organizations committed to improving health and well-being.
