At Salo we are passionate about sharing our skills and talents each day to fulfill our company mission of “Connecting people to make a difference,” and that includes serving our local community and its members. From a community involvement perspective, we are passionate about influencing change that impacts the lives of others!
On Saturday, May 14th, a team of nearly 70 Salo employees, family members and friends participated in the American Heart Association’s 2016 Heart Walk in downtown Minneapolis. The American Heart Association does incredible work to help communities build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. The Twin Cities Heart Walk is just one way in which the American Heart Association connects with the community at large to raise awareness of these serious issues.
Salo has partnered with the American Heart Association and has been recognized as a “Fit Friendly Firm” for several years and was happy to join more than 25,000 participants, including many of our clients and friends of the firm, at Target Field for the Heart Walk opening ceremony. Despite the unseasonably cold temperatures, our section (complete with our matching shirts and “Let’s Get Solving” signs) exemplified positive energy in true Salo form. We enjoyed connecting with other participants and celebrating those who have survived heart disease and embraced healthier lifestyles.
The American Heart Association challenges people to identify their “why.” Why fight to end heart disease and stroke? Why embrace a healthier lifestyle? Why support the Twin Cities Heart Walk? Our answer: to influence change. At Salo we embrace and enact change to help organizations grow and drive outcomes. We are proud to be able to influence positive change within the community, as well.
Participation in events like the Twin Cities Heart Walk is just one way in which we are able to live our mission, and demonstrate our six core values (Aware & intuitive, Connecting, Driven, Innovation, Positive Energy, Professionalism). Salo partners with and supports numerous organizations and initiatives through volunteer and philanthropic efforts, with a focus on health, wellness and education. Whether it is a city-wide event to defeat heart disease, or solving business problems for our clients, we are determined and driven to do all that we can to make every interaction with our community an impactful one.
