Mr. Buran stated: "Cardiovascular health is by far the most important reason to support this event but there are other benefits of corporate involvement – team building, a healthier workforce, improved productivity and the opportunity to give back to the communities where we do business. As a local corporate sponsor Flushing Bank has made a commitment of $35,000. Additionally, we will be organizing walk teams with staff from all of our locations throughout the New York area. We hope to have a great turnout and are truly excited about being involved with this event." He also added: "A highlight of the morning was meeting Cecilia Funk, the 2012 Red Cap Ambassador and her family. Cecilia's words were both eloquent and inspiring. She is a truly remarkable young lady."
