(August 30- Lake Charles and Sulphur) First National Bank employees will participate in the Southwest Louisiana American Heart Association Benefit Start! Heart Walk on November 7th at the Lake Charles Civic Center. The event, which serves as the signature fund-raising event for the American Heart Association, promotes physical activity and heart-healthy living. FNB employees from the Lake Charles and Sulphur offices will participate in the Start! Heart Walk, encouraging other to take steps toward heart-health lifestyles while raising funds to fight heart disease and stroke.
“Unfortunately, too many of us have lost a loved one to heart disease or stroke. To help bring an end to these diseases, my colleagues and I will be walking in this year’s Start! Heart Walk. We appreciate the opportunities we have at First National Bank to raise funds for important organizations that change lives in our community,” said FNB’s Brian Abshire.
