Village Properties Teams Up to Help Start! Heart Walk

Agents, staff raise more than $2,300 for American Heart Association

Village Properties agents and staff joined with hundreds of other walkers to participate in the American Heart Association’s Start! Santa Barbara Heart Walk in Santa Barbara on Oct. 9.

The team raised more than $2,300 toward the total goal for the walk of $180,000. Village Properties has been an active participant in the annual Heart Walk since 2004.

All money raised at the Heart Walk is used to fund lifesaving research and educational programs aimed at reducing death and disability caused by heart disease and stroke. The American Heart Association is the second-largest funding source of heart- and stroke-focused research in the world.

More than 600 walkers participated in the 5K walk this year. Besides the walk, the event included a health festival, live music, risk-factor screenings, a Kid’s Zone and a bounce house.

Village Properties agents look forward to next year’s walk and to continue their efforts in helping the Heart Association in this vital effort.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
