Thanks in large part to Stillman School Leadership Development students Mona Safar and Megan Smith, Seton Hall University won the inaugural American Heart Association Morris and Essex University Challenge.
The Challenge, sponsored by Investors Bank, was issued to six New Jersey schools including Seton Hall University, Montclair State University, Bloomfield University, the College of Saint Elizabeth, Fairleigh Dickinson University and Drew University.
For Seton Hall’s main fundraising effort, Leadership Development students established the “Heart Walk of 2011” which took place on October 21 in the Field House. Alpha Kappa Psi Professional Business Fraternity, several sports teams and other student organizations also participated. Fundraising efforts leading up to the Heart Walk included on and off campus efforts, bake sales and general donations from the Seton Hall community and South Orange businesses.
Kevin Cummings, president and CEO of Investors Bank and member of the Stillman School’s Leadership Advisory Council, is presenting each of the top three fundraisers: Seton Hall University, Fairleigh Dickinson University and the College of Saint Elizabeth, with a check in the amount of the funds raised plus the match by Investors Bank. These funds will impact programs and research that help fight cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
In addition to the check presentation, each of the three winning schools will be presented with an award at the 2011 Essex, Morris and Union Awards Reception on December 8 at Hamilton Park Hotel and Conference Center.
