CLEARWATER, Fla. (November 19, 2018) – PODS Enterprises, LLC announced today that it raised more than $41,000 for the American Heart Association’s Tampa Bay Heart Walk, exceeding its goal of $30,000 and surpassing previous fundraising totals.

This is the seventh consecutive year PODS has raised money for and participated in the Tampa Bay Heart Walk. The effort brings together PODS’ associates to participate in the walk and organize fundraising efforts. This year it included PODS hosting a golf tournament at Bardmoor Golf & Tennis Club in Seminole, with proceeds benefitting the Heart Walk.
“At PODS, giving back and being active in our community is engrained in our culture,” said President and CEO of PODS, John Koch. “Cardiovascular health is a very important cause to us, and we are honored to support the American Heart Association’s advancements in heart disease and stroke research, education, and treatment.”
“As a long-time supporter of the American Heart Association and the Tampa Bay Heart Walk, we thank PODS for their commitment and contributions over the years, which has truly made an impact in the community,” said Jordyn Taveras, Director of the American Heart Association’s Tampa Bay Heart Walk. “Every advancement, every discovery, every life saved from heart disease and stroke is made possible because of supporters like PODS!”
