Ottinger Golf Group – Proud Sponsor of the American Heart Association.
We are pleased to announce that Chip Ottinger, Jr., Chairman of the Ottinger Golf Group is serving as the Chairman of the 2016 American Heart Association’s “Life Is Why Campaign” celebratory Heart Walk Chairman. This important initiative will help lead, inspire and motivate our community toward making life-changing and lifesaving behavior changes.
Ottinger said the decision to get involved was an easy one. “Cardiovascular diseases threaten all Americans but together we can make a difference to reduce risk and save lives.” The American Heart Association’s mission is to promote a healthy diet and lifestyle. It’s been long proven that they are among the best weapons to fight Cardiovascular Disease. Simple changes can have long-term benefits.
According to Debbie VanSant, The American Heart Association South Jersey Regional Director, “Exercise is key. It helps you maintain a healthy weight, lowers cholesterol, blood pressure and reduces stress, all contributing factors in Cardiovascular Disease.” Ottinger added, “Golf, can be an excellent way to exercise. We encourage walking at all of our courses and hope that this initiative will further increase the number of players choosing to forgo a cart and walk.”
Education and support are the cornerstones to “The Life Is Why” Campaign and to that end, The Ottinger Golf Group Golf Courses will help spread the message of the American Heart Association throughout the upcoming year. It will also commemorate its commitment and welcome Atlantic City Country Club to the family with a special edition Atlantic City Country Club Golf Ball.
