Help us in supporting the
Community-Wide Effort Runs July 17 – September 8 with Outreach, Virtual Events & More!
Sheehy Auto Stores is proud to announce the return of the 23rd annual Sheehy 8000 Sales Race running from July 17th through September 8th. This is a community-wide initiative in which all 29 Sheehy Auto dealerships sell cars while raising awareness and money to benefit the American Heart Association.
“The Sheehy 8000 is one of our most significant annual sales events and fundraising partnerships,” said Vince Sheehy, President of Sheehy Auto Stores. “As we all navigate living through the COVID-19 pandemic and our new reality, it is important now more than ever to stay well through heart healthy diets and exercise. We are proud to once again partner with the American Heart Association and their ‘Healthy for Good’ initiative to provide homebound and socially distant support and guidance.”
Last year, our Sheehy 8000 campaign raised $300,000 for the charity. To date, Sheehy’s fundraising efforts have raised more than $40 million for community and non-profit organizations, and over $1.6 million raised for the American Heart Association. We thank you for your continued support in helping us exceed our expectations!
Each of our Sheehy dealerships throughout Washington, DC, Richmond, VA, Hagerstown and Baltimore, MD will lead various initiatives in support of the Sheehy 8000 to include virtual events to engage the community with ways to stay heart healthy and safe while maintaining social distance during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Sheehy Auto Stores’ support is creating healthier communities in the Greater Washington, Baltimore and Richmond regions,” said Soula Antoniou, Executive Director at the American Heart Association. “Thank you Sheehy team members, customers, and vendors for your support of AHA’s mission. By working together, we can be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.”
The mission of the American Heart Association is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
Our goal is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke for all Americans. We are constantly working hard to reduce the number of people dying from cardiovascular diseases and strokes. We do this by advocating to place AEDs in public places like airports and malls, researching to find the next medical breakthrough in regards to heart health, helping hospitals implement different processes to improve stroke and cardiac patient outcomes and establishing CRP guidelines and training people of all ages to be able to save lives. We are also reducing the high amounts of bad calories children are consuming at school and celebrating the many babies that are saved by the mandatory pulse oximetry screening that they receive before leaving the hospital. We are thrilled to be working with Sheehy Auto Stores for the second year in a row for the Sheehy 8000.
Together we are working to save lives and better our community!
