Wake Forest Baptist to Hold Free Document Shredding Event April 9

March 21, 2011

Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and the American Heart Association (AHA) will host a free shredding day on Saturday, April 9, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., in the parking lot of Miller Plaza, located at 2200 Cloverdale Ave.

Cintas Inc. will provide shredding services. Participants can watch as their documents are securely shredded on-site before being recycled.

The shredding service is free; however, donations will be accepted. All proceeds benefit the AHA’s Tanglewood Heart and Stroke Walk.

The Tanglewood Walk is the AHA’s largest local fundraiser and will take place on Saturday, Oct. 15. Wake Forest Baptist is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the Tanglewood Walk.

More than 1 million Americans participate in Heart & Stroke walks across the country, in more than 300 cities to fund research to erase heart disease and stroke, two of the nation’s biggest killers.
