This year's reimagined Heart Walk will be the biggest ever, as we bring the experience right to you! You can walk wherever you are, joining 1 million walkers from across the nation.

Almost half of those hospitalized with COVID-19 are stroke survivors or people with heart disease. They're counting on us now more than ever! Your donations will help fast track research and train front-line workers - while we continue the fight against heart disease and stroke.

Event Details & FAQs

Nothing unites us like doing good together

Heart walk has always been about coming together, getting hearts pumping, honoring survivors, raising lifesaving funds - and having fun along the way.

Make sure everyone on your team is registered so they do not miss out on the details coming soon! Then, get ready to “lace up” and walk where you are, October 5 - 10, 2020. Share your selfies and comment along the way! Use #MDHeartWalk and you may be featured on our social media pages.

It’s my honor and privilege to serve as this year’s chair,” says Thomas B. Smyth, MD. “The Greater Maryland Heart Walk represents what’s best about our state, our citizens and our health care providers: our shared commitment to link arms and literally ‘walk the walk’ for improved heart health education and awareness throughout our communities. University of Maryland Medical System and UM St. Joseph Medical Center are proud to support this vital and worthwhile cause.”
