2021 Metro Chicago Heart Walk

When should I walk? Identify a time with your team or company that works for you all to come out.
Where do I meet my team? There will be a small area near the start line where there will be a few tents, a DJ and photo ops that you can wait for your team members to arrive before taking off on the route together.
Where do I finish the race? At both walk sites, the route will finish where it began- near the original gathering area and close to parking.
Will there be food and drink? This year we will have fruit and water available at both walks.

The American Heart Association is creating mask-friendly environments at all our events. Vaccinated attendees will have the option of choosing whether to wear a mask, while those who are unvaccinated will need to wear a mask. Please do not attend an AHA event if you are not feeling well or have symptoms, irrespective of your vaccine status. If you have a condition that weakens your immune system or take certain medications, you may need to take extra precautions even if you are fully vaccinated, as instructed by your doctor. The AHA encourages you and everyone you love, care for, or care about to be vaccinated.
