PediaPlex Joins Oncor This Weekend at 2015 Dallas Heart Walk

We are proud and excited to be participating in conjunction with Oncor at the 2015 Dallas Heart Walk, sponsored by the American Heart Association. PediaPlex staff and volunteers will set up a booth at the event to add to the activities available for Oncor employees. The Heart Walk will be held Saturday, September 12, starting at 9 a.m. at the base of Reunion Tower, 300 Reunion Boulevard East, Dallas.

The three-mile non-competition walk will wind through downtown Dallas and return to the starting point. Opening ceremonies will precede the walk at 8:30 a.m. The PediaPlex booth will feature face-painting and other activities for children and families. It also will give us a chance to pass out brochures about our all-inclusive clinical services and talk with people about our collaborative approach to pediatric care.

“We are thrilled to be invited to participate in this event,” said Sonia Kirkpatrick, owner of PediaPlex. “We are going to have a wonderful time, and we will be able to share with thousands of people about the benefits we have to offer them. This is the first year we have taken part, and we are really looking forward to it. The invitation came about because a family whose child is receiving treatments at PediaPlex is so pleased with our company that they want to share their positive experiences with others in the community. Word-of-mouth is the best possible support.”

The Dallas Heart Walk is free, but sponsorships are available at various financial levels. Individuals also may raise funds; people who raise more than $100 will receive a free commemorative t-shirt. Registration can be completed here on the Dallas Heart Walk site.

The overall mission of nationwide Heart Walks is to bring awareness to people about cardiovascular diseases and strokes and to help them lead healthier lives.
