We’re all aware of how our lives are different now due to COVID-19 and this year’s Heart Walk celebration will be too. While our traditional event will not be held in person this year, we are just as excited because we want this to be the biggest Heart Walk you’ve seen yet. Together, we will reach more people, stay active and raise critical funds to save lives! And we will do so in fun, new ways.

This year, we will walk together as ONE because so much is at stake. COVID-19 has only strengthened our resolve because 40% of those hospitalized due to COVID-19 are stroke survivors or people with heart disease. We’re investing in new research and training front line workers, while we continue the fight against heart disease and stroke.

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, with us at 9:00 am on Sunday, October 25, 2020. Share your selfies and comment along the way! Use #LifeIsWhyNJ and you may be featured on our social media pages.

Thank you for your passion and dedication to our mission: to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives, throughout the year. And, thank you for being part of this ONE of a kind experience this year and we look forward to celebrating all that we have accomplished together.
