Wake Forest Baptist Holds Free Document Shredding Event August 24

August 1, 2013

Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and the American Heart Association (AHA) will host a document shredding event for the public on Saturday, Aug. 24, from 9 a.m. until noon, in the parking lot of the Miller Plaza building at 2200 Cloverdale Ave.

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

The shredding service is free, but donations are appreciated. All proceeds benefit the AHA’s Tanglewood Heart and Stroke Walk that will take place on Saturday, Oct. 19.

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

Wake Forest Baptist is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the Tanglewood Heart and Stroke Walk, the AHA’s largest local fundraiser. The Walk festivities begin at 8 a.m. on Oct. 19. Registration for the Walk is required.

For more information on the Walk, and to register, visit www.wakehealth.edu/Tanglewood or call 336-716-4588.
