Life is why we walk.
Thanks to all our walkers, donors and volunteers who have accepted the challenge to help fight heart disease and stroke. We cannot achieve our mission without each one of you!

“I invite you to join us in our mission to stop heart disease before it’s even started by staying physically active, making healthy food choices, working with your health care professionals, and knowing your numbers—blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, body mass index (BMI).
We know that making little changes in our habits can have a huge impact. Sometimes we need extra support to make the best decisions and that’s why our community is fortunate to have the American Heart Association. By supporting the AHA’s mission to end cardiovascular disease and stroke, we can change our community and improve the lives of family, friends and neighbors. The AHA reaches so many people with their critical message of education, empowerment, and prevention and I hope you will join us in these efforts.”
We aren't just walking. We're Heartwalking! Thank you for joining nearly 1 million Americans at 305 events across the country to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
How can you make a positive difference in the lives of your friends, family and co-workers? Join the Heart Walk, start Heartwalking and make the commitment to being healthy for good. Remember- we're not only raising funds, we're raising heartbeats!
