Mark Gray

Mark Gray, president and CEO of ASRC Federal, has been appointed by the American Heart Association as chair of the 2018 Greater Washington Region Heart Walk.

“AHA and the broad government contracting community work tirelessly together to raise funds for, and awareness of, cardiovascular-related illnesses,” Gray said in a statement published Feb. 13.

“In November of each year, the Heart Walk – a family event on the National Mall – is the culmination of many months of heightening awareness and fundraising for cardiovascular research,” added Gray, a 2018 Wash100 recipient.

He previously served as a member of the Greater Washington Region Heart Walk’s executive leadership committee.

The Heart Walk is an annual noncompetitive event that promotes physical activity through a one- or three-mile walk to help prevent heart diseases.
