Healthy Heart Challenge
Join us and participate in the fourth annual Healthy Heart Challenge. In partnership with the American Heart Association’s Guilford Heart Ball, Bank of Oak Ridge is proud to sponsor the 2016 Healthy Heart Challenge.
Nominate yourself or someone in your life for the following Healthy Heart Challenge categories:
- Defying the Odds (Overcoming Challenges)
Nominate someone who has overcome a great challenge to get healthier and help those around them get healthier. Have they worked through health issues or injuries, or overcome fears to accomplish health-related goals they never thought possible? These individuals go above and beyond.
- Striving for the Summit (Most Improved)
Nominate someone who has made impressive changes to improve their heart health. Did they get active? Take on challenges they never thought possible? Changed how they cook and eat? Quit smoking? Inspired family, and friends to make healthy choices? There’s no stopping these individuals.
- In It for the Distance (Long-term Changes)
Nominate someone who has greatly improved their health and then managed to maintain these changes. Have they kept the weight off? Gone from walking to running marathons? Not a fad diet or a short sprint – these individuals maintained their healthy lifestyle change over a long period of time.
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.

The Seven Heart Risk Factors
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of both men and women in the United States, accounting for nearly one third of all deaths in the nation. Stroke is the 4th leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability. The American Heart Association’s Life’s Simple 7™ program focuses on the seven risk factors for cardiovascular disease and recommends a personalized plan to reduce each area.
