Lowcounty Heart Walk set for Sept. 28

  • Thursday, September 26, 2013

Are you a heart disease or stroke survivor — or are you close to one?

The American Heart Association wants to walk with you in September.

On Saturday, Sept. 28, more than 5,000 people are expected to take to the streets for the American Heart Association’s Lowcountry Heart Walk at Liberty Square in downtown Charleston.

The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s largest single fundraising event across the nation. Everyone is welcome and participation is free.

This year’s fundraising goal for the Lowcountry Heart Walk is $775,000. Sign-up is now open for the event.

The American Heart Association welcomes survivors, survivor families and their supporters to join the festivities and share their stories. Heart and stroke survivors will be distinguished at the Heart Walk with special red caps.

The Heart Walk is a non-competitive, 5K fundraising walk with teams from local companies and community groups, and friends and family members of all ages.

Funds raised support research, public health programs and community education to fight heart disease and stroke, America’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers.

The annual success of the Lowcountry Heart Walk is due in part to local cause sponsors MUSC Health and The InterTech Group and nationally sponsored by Subway Restaurants and Jenny Craig.
