Player: Bob Clark - President of Operations, Clark Pacific
I’m Bob Clark, President of Operations for Clark Pacific, a design-build precast concrete manufacturer. This year I’m the chairperson for the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk in Sacramento, and I have chosen the AHA as my charity. Eleven years ago I experienced a heart attack while running in my neighborhood. Quick action by a neighbor (who happened to be a doctor) using proper CPR efforts saved my life. The nation’s No. 1 and No. 5 causes of death are cardiovascular disease and stroke. The American Heart Association funds more research than any US organization except the federal government. Research, public health and professional education and training are some of the areas that are impacted by a donated dollar. AHA’s goal is to improve cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent by the year 2020 while reducing deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke by 20 percent. Your donation supporting this cause will go toward helping us achieve this goal.
