2017-2018 Tacoma Heart Ball
2018 Dinner with Heart Co-Chairs
Mark and Erin Shagren
Mark & Erin Shagren have passion for philanthropy, a deep interest in health and fitness, and a love for the South Sound region. As our 2018 Dinner with Heart Co-chairs, Mark & Erin will lead the charge to fight against heart disease and stroke and help us build a healthier South Sound. Erin is currently the Executive Director of the Names Family Foundation and has volunteered on the Dinner with Heart Executive Leadership Team for two years.
In partnership with the Shagren Family, the American Heart Association's Dinner with Heart campaign is focused on reducing the rate of childhood obesity and encouraging our South Sound youth to be more active. More than 30% of kids in the United States age 2-19 are considered overweight or obese. The American Heart Association is advocating for physical education at the federal and state levels to help kids get the necessary physical activity in school. Despite our efforts, two-thirds of kids are not getting enough physical activity during the day. With the generous support of our community, we can implement more programs in the South Sound to help more kids take action and get moving, creating healthy habits for our local youth!
Thank you Mark & Erin Shagren for your commitment to building a healthier community.
