In order to control the spread of COVID-19, the CDC is recommending postponing events and gatherings with crowds of 10 or more. So wherever you are on Saturday, June 13th we invite you to lace-up your shoes and WALK or RUN to ensure that funds are there for future medical advancements. Then share your walking selfies and videos on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook #MIHeartWalk.
The Heart Walk is about a spirit of community -- sharing stories, honoring lives lost too soon, celebrating lives saved – all working toward a shared goal of raising lifesaving dollars that fund research, move health policies forward, and make our communities healthier. We see this community spirit alive now more than ever, even as many of us are staying home or working hard on the frontlines as essential workers, we are united in our goal to save lives. Those suffering from heart disease and stroke – the leading killers globally – may be at highest risk during this time. We persevere for them.
