“I am delighted to help support the AHA’s lifesaving mission as the Heart Walk chair,” Stout said. “This event means a great deal to me personally because many of our Gannett Fleming employees and their families are affected by cardiovascular disease and stroke. My mother also suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We are proud to help raise much-needed funds that will save lives.”
