The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association's premiere event for raising funds to save lives from this country's No. 1 and No. 5 killers - heart disease and stroke. Designed to promote physical activity and heart-healthy living, the Heart Walk creates an environment that's fun and rewarding for the entire family.
When you join Heart Walk, you join more than a million people in hundreds of cities across America in taking a stand against heart disease and helping save lives and helping us celebrate with friends, family, coworkers or strangers you'll bond with along the way. Any way you choose to do it, your heart will thank you for it!
We have all been impacted by cardiovascular disease and stroke. When you participate in the Heart Walk, you will have the opportunity to support the AHA and honor a loved one that has been impacted by either of these two diseases.
Company Teams are formed when corporate companies engage their organization to participant in Heart Walk by setting a fundraising goal and encouraging all employees to participate. The Heart Walk is a great way to promote health and wellness in the workplace.
Community Teams are made up of friends and family committed to making a difference in the fight against heart diseases and stroke. Family and friends form teams through their family, neighborhood, church, service clubs, survivor groups, etc., and many teams are formed to raise money in honor or memory of a loved one.
