Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Colorado and the American Heart Association joined forces for CycleNation, a heart-healthy fundraiser and awareness campaign to support the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association, earlier this month. Through the efforts of employees and sales agents affiliated with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Colorado, more than $42,000 was raised to help fund research for life-threatening cardiovascular diseases.

“At Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, we strive to give back to our communities,” said Chris Mygatt, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Colorado. “Supporting the American Heart Association’s CycleNation event is one of our favorite annual fundraising efforts. This year, we had 39 teams with 182 participants raise their heart rates and much needed funds – all while having a great time.”

During the event on October 7, participants and their team members got moving on stationary bikes at Tivoli Quad promoting the use of bicycles for cardiovascular fitness. Participants had to keep their bikes in motion for two hours with a team of four to eight cyclists. Each bike had a $1,000 minimum fundraising goal. This is the second year in a row that Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage sponsored the event, last year raising over $14,000.

“Many people don’t realize that cardiovascular disease accounts for one out of three deaths in the U.S.,” said Jennifer Barker, CycleNation director, American Heart Association. “Events like CycleNation help bring much needed attention to the biggest killer in our country and we’re thankful for sponsors like Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.”
