Joeris General Contractors, Ltd. Raises $120,000 for American Heart Association

(San Antonio, Texas) – Joeris General Contractors, Ltd. is thrilled to announce that their 2013 San Antonio Heart & Stroke Walk team has raised over $123,000. The Heart & Stroke walk took place on October 26, 2013 at Nelson Wolff Stadium where the Joeris team, 68 strong, walked with more than 9,500 individuals in San Antonio’s largest walk ever.

Gary Joeris, President of Joeris Group, Inc., was honorary chair of this year’s walk. “We made it our goal to increase awareness about the walk, provide a strong team on walk day and raise the much needed funds for the American Heart Association. We are extremely pleased with the outcome and thank each and every one who contributed.”

“The 2013 Heart & Stroke Walk was the most successful Heart & Stroke Walk to date in San Antonio, raising more than $680,000 toward lifesaving research, education and advocacy efforts,” said Lisa Cruz, Executive Director, American Heart Association San Antonio. “Gary Joeris, as the 2013 chair, and the collaboration we shared with he and his team was critical to our fundraising efforts this year. We are so grateful to Joeris General Contractors for their support and commitment to building stronger, healthier communities.”

As the top fundraising team for this year’s Heart & Stroke Walk, Joeris’ efforts contributed to a record-breaking year, raising nearly $100,000 net new dollars more than last year. Joeris is one of only two companies in San Antonio to have ever reached the over $120,000 milestone.
