THANK YOU! Whether you got your steps in around the neighborhood, walking path, or comfort of your treadmill, we appreciate and celebrate you for supporting the Heart & Stroke Walk in Central MA! Though we could not physically celebrate with you, we saw and heard the passion from so many of our friends (locally and nationally) as you crossed the finish line strong! We are all so inspired by the many pictures, videos, DIY water stops, shout -outs and support for the American Heart Association.

We know it took countless hours, time, dedication, passion, runners, walkers, SURVIVORS and volunteers. It takes a city . . . IT TAKES YOU!!! No matter the distance or location, together we have raised $95,000 (and counting) in support of critical research programs that can lead to our next lifesaving breakthrough impacting generations to come!

PLUS, we have a special announcement:  UMass Memorial Medical Center has agreed to match the first $5,000 raised this week through Friday, June 26th with a two-for-one match. So, if you raise or donate $100 this week, with this generous match from UMass, your donation will turn into $300.  So please let everyone on your team and all your friends and family know so they can take advantage of this great opportunity.
