This year's Heart Walk will be the biggest ever. While you celebrate with us, you'll also join 1 million walkers from across the nation as we all move as one.

Take a moment to consider your impact. You will keep hearts beating. The hearts of moms, dads, brothers, aunts and babies. And this year's donations will help fast track COVID-19 research and train front-line workers while we continue the fight against heart disease and stroke.

Nothing unites us like doing good together

What will happen on our Walk Day


Walk/Run Start Time – Whenever You Start

  • Walk/Run Distance– However Far You Choose - You can do 3 miles or 1 mile like our typical in-person Heart Walk route or go however far you’d like! 5k runners should record their time for their own 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) run.
  • Walk/Run Location – Wherever You Are - Plan to walk safely with friends or family “where you are" in your neighborhood, in your local park, or explore one of the amazing trails around our great state.
  • How do I share my time? – Information for 5k runners will be shared soon. All other Heart Walk participants do not need to report their distance/time but can record their activity as part of the final day of our “Move More” Activity Challenge in the Heart Walk app.
