Zeus Raises Over $135,000 for the American Heart Association

For the third consecutive year, Zeus, a leading global polymer extrusion and catheter design manufacturer, supported the American Heart Association (AHA) and raised over $135,000 for heart health. Team members from across the United States held events, fundraisers, t-shirt drives, and more to raise money to help AHA’s mission to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.

“For Zeus, this is more than just a donation,” says Jennifer McQuesten, VP of Corporate Communications at Zeus. “It’s an extension of our very purposeful work. We take great pride in making products used in lifesaving surgeries, including those of heart patients.”

The company’s donation comes after completing AHA’s annual Move More Challenge. The 30-day event encourages individuals to move their bodies to create healthier lifestyle habits. Zeus team members contributed a total of 665,038 minutes, which equates to more than 461 days!

“It’s always encouraging to work with companies that invest as much in the community as they do their employees. Zeus is an organization that has supported the American Heart Association for years, and as we celebrate our centennial anniversary, we appreciate them for being one of our first-second-century supporters. It is our goal to ensure that every person has the opportunity to live a full, healthy life, and this gift from Zeus will help us make a significant impact in the Midlands,” said Crystal Kirkland, Executive Director of the Midlands American Heart Association.

“Supporting the American Heart Association is perfectly aligned with our mission, vision, and core values,” says Zeus CEO, Padraic “Paddy” O’Brien. “Contributing to a great cause and knowing its potential to improve and ultimately save lives is meaningful to our team members and the communities in which we live and work. It’s the embodiment of our vision of working together and doing it better.”
