American Heart Association honors Supervalu exec


MINNEAPOLIS Pamela Knous, EVP and CFO for Supervalu, received the Award of Meritorious Achievement from the American Heart Association (AHA).

The award, presented during the Association’s Lobby Day activities in Washington, recognizes Knous for her successful fundraising efforts in support of Go Red For Women, AHA’s program aimed at educating women about the risk factors for heart disease and urging them to take action to reduce their personal risk.

Knous served as the campaign chair for the 2008 Twin Cities Go Red For Women campaign. In this role, she led the charge to raise funds throughout the community to support local cardiovascular research and educational programs designed to drive home the message that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of American women and to inspire women to commit to a heart-healthy lifestyle. Under her leadership, a record $1.3 million was raised by the Twin Cities campaign alone, a sum that included Supervalu's contribution of $50,000.
