Join your local Heart Walk, fundraise and give support to the American Heart Association in the fight against COVID-19. Together, we'll protect the hearts we love that are the most vulnerable during this extraordinary time.
I walk because I know that with every step, I'm making a difference in someone's life, including my own. In August 2021, my grandmother, Ona “Pearl” Pegues, passed away after several years of heart disease. I wanted to do something in her honor, while making better decisions in my health. My family and our friends are walking in her honor and to bring awareness, that it's never to late to take care of your heart. And when combined with a million other Heart Walk Heroes across the nation, we have an even greater impact toward curing heart disease and stroke. Will you be a Heart Walk Hero with me?
Your donation will fund groundbreaking research that literally keeps hearts beating and helps people have longer, healthier lives.
