Olympian, Dana Vollmer visits our Bay Area Office!

You already know we’re all about heart-health. So, it makes sense that we were avid television watchers during the Olympic games. Now, when I say watchers – we hosted watching parties, complete with lots of fruits and veggies and a house full of screaming and cheering friends.

Of course we cheered on all of our American heroes, but one was extra special to our hearts – heart hero and gold medalist, Dana Vollmer.

When she stopped by our offices in the Greater Bay Area, the team was more than happy to oogle her gold medal. From Roman Bowser, Western States Affiliate Executive Vice President’s blog:

I think there is no better way to close out a blog… than with a picture of someone who leads the ultimate healthy life – an Olympian who has several gold medals and holds a world record! Dana Vollmer is a heart disease survivor and Greater Bay Area volunteer. She is a competitive swimmer and participated in the 2004 and 2012 Olympics and recently stopped by the local office to check in and share a peek at her new bauble with office staff. Dana has been a long-time Go Red For Women volunteer and plans to continue to work closely with the assiciation. Congratulations, Dana – great job Team USA!
