The Heart Walk is a free community event and a vital part of the American Heart Association’s healthy living movement. The event is a fun, uplifting, family-oriented, non-competitive walk. Pets are welcome to walk with you, except on the baseball diamond.  This year to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Heart Walk, we have added a 5K Scrub Run to Heart Walk that focuses on those in the community who are saving lives and celebrating the lives they have saved.  We encourage those who are walking or running, to dress up in scrubs or the uniform of your Heart Hero! 

This will be a very special addition that will help us reach additional companies and people in the community that are looking for an alternative to a walk. Each year, more than 60+ companies and 1,500+ individuals come together in September to raise funds to support the AHA. 

This inspires people to take that first step in improving their cardiovascular health or celebrate their own healthy movement.
