Healthy Heart Challenge

Healthy Heart ChallengeJoin us and participate in the second annual Healthy Heart Challenge. In partnership with the American Heart Association’s Guilford Heart Ball, Bank of Oak Ridge is proud to sponsor the 2014 Healthy Heart Challenge.

As one of the Triad’s Healthiest Employers recognized by the Triad Business Journal, Bank of Oak Ridge has made the health of our employees a strong focus within our company. Now, Bank of Oak Ridge is once again encouraging all citizens of Guilford County to not only bank as they should, but to take care of their hearts as they should.

As part of the Healthy Heart Challenge, Bank of Oak Ridge will be accepting nominations from men and women who have made, or would like to challenge themselves to make, lifestyle changes to prevent heart disease and stroke starting February 28, 2014 and ending on May 31, 2014.
