Sheehy Auto Stores raised $250,500 to benefit the American Heart Association as part of the company's annual Sheehy 8000 Sales Race, a community-wide effort that ran July 17 to Sept. 8, raising funds and awareness for the charity.

"The Sheehy 8000 continues to be our biggest annual sales event and fundraising partnership," said Vince Sheehy, president of Sheehy Auto Stores. "During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important now more than ever to stay well through heart healthy diets and exercise. Our partnership with the American Heart Association enables them to continue their great work and community support."

 

In lieu of a series of in-person "Lunch and Learns" for Sheehy Auto Stores' back office staff, the American Heart Association worked with Sheehy to facilitate a virtual event with more than 100 attendees from dealerships in Annapolis and Waldorf, MD; and Ashland and Springfield, VA.

 

Speakers included Dr. Roquell Wyche, a cardiologist with Chesapeake and Washington Heart Care, and heart patient survivor, 16-year old Kaelyn Graham and her mother, Jolanda, who shared their story.

 

Sheehy's 29 dealerships participated in a Pedometer Challenge, collectively recording 763,548 steps and surpassing last year's count of 656,006 steps. Sheehy INFINITI of Chantilly, VA, won the challenge with 115,854 steps. 

 

Employees were encouraged to select various heart-healthy activities and habits from the American Heart Association Game Board ranging from workouts to dietary and sleep adjustments.
