Because heart disease is the number one killer of Americans, this event encourages exercise as part of a heart-healthy lifestyle. It is the American Heart Association’s (AHA) signature fundraising affair, in which the proceeds from more than 1,500 local walkers from businesses, schools, organizations, family, and friends, as well as people across the country raise funding for lifesaving research, educational programs and advocacy component of the AHA.
Teams of businesses or organizations are encouraged to participate. A team is comprised of 15 or more registered walkers or runners. Another way to support the Heart Walk is to become a sponsor by providing donations.
