“It’s my honor and privilege to serve as chair of this year’s Côtes du Coeur,” said Grimshaw. “Caliber Collision is dedicated to restoring the rhythm of lives in every community we serve. I am humbled and grateful to all of our many colleagues, partners and teammates at Caliber Collision who have so generously stepped up to pledge their support to the American Heart Association.”
