2019 Torch Heart Walk Team

Torch employee-owners have a heart for giving back to their communities, and this year's Huntsville Heart Walk was an example of their heart for helping others. Through Torch Helps, Torch in Action, and Torch corporate charitable giving and company-sponsored events, Torch employee-owners and families have set a high standard for involvement and community outreach. Torch employee-owners' participation in the American Heart Association (AHA) Huntsville Heart and Stroke Walk continued this year, with Torch's co-founder, Bill Roark, co-chairing the 2019 Huntsville Heart Walk. The Torch Team had 150 members and Torch employee-owners, family, and friends joined the Torch Team on Saturday, April 13th in downtown Huntsville for the annual event. The Torch Team was the largest team, and the top fundraising company, raising $63,000 through 196 donations and contributing to the more than $510,000 that was raised by AHA during the walk. This year, Torch's CEO and Co-Founder Bill Roark was the Heart Walk's Top Executive Fundraiser, and a Torch employee-owner, Debbie Overcash, was the Top Individual Fundraiser. Like Torch, this event continues to grow each year, and we are proud to be a part of it!
