TROY, Mich. Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- ArvinMeritor (NYSE: ARM) today announced that the 2009 Metro Detroit Go Red For Women(R) program chaired by Lin Cummins, senior vice president of Communications for ArvinMeritor, reached a new fundraising record of more than $425,000.
"In one of the most challenging economic times in history, I am proud of the support we received from local businesses and individuals to help wipe out heart disease, the number one killer of women today," said Cummins, who also received the Detroit City Council's Distinguished Service Award for her involvement and support of the program. "It makes good business sense to build awareness of the impact heart disease has on women because the wellness of a company's workforce affects its bottom line," Cummins said.

These activities include a one-mile walking path at the company's world headquarters where employees are encouraged to join the company's Chairman, CEO and President, Chip McClure, for twice monthly, 30-minute walking sessions to "Walk and Talk with the Chairman."
