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!
We care deeply about the wellbeing of the affected communities in North Carolina, including our own, and our hearts and thoughts are with our neighbors, volunteers and participants. At times like this, we must seize the opportunity to rally around each other for our community. In alliance with our other community partners who are driving hurricane relief efforts, we will collect needed items for Charlotte Rescue Mission, who has a long history of serving the homeless and those battling addiction.
During Hurricane Florence, many evacuees found shelter with Charlotte Rescue Mission. Our own homeless and storm-impacted friends and neighbors also found refuge here. These families remain in Charlotte and need our help. One of the pillars of our Healthy For Good movement is Be Well and this includes personal hygiene and a good night’s sleep to improve your overall well-being. As you can imagine, many residents at Charlotte Rescue Mission lack these everyday conveniences.
We would like to help restock necessary items for a depleted Charlotte Rescue Mission with donations from participants at our Greater Charlotte Heart Walk. Please bring any of these new and packaged items to the Community Support Tent located at the Walk:
Thank you for supporting our neighbors in need.
