On September 8, nearly 1 million Americans at hundreds of walks across the country will team up to build healthier lives. The American Heart Association Heart Walk raises awareness for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and strokes. Every walker, donor and volunteer at the event will contribute to fighting these health concerns and improving America's future.
To participate, you can register as an individual or a team to join in the 3.5-mile walk at the base of Reunion Tower at 6:30 AM on Saturday. If you can't attend the walk, donate to the American Heart Association's online campaign. Every bit of positive effort contributes to healthier hearts throughout the country. As the AHA says, "We're not only raising funds, we're raising heartbeats!"
