Time to lace up for Heart Walk

September 23, 2009

Support the fight against heart disease and stroke, the nation’s number one and three killers, by joining the 140 Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center employees already registered for the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Capitol Region Heart Walk on Sunday, Oct. 4 at Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC).

Walkers raise funds by collecting donations and individuals can earn fantastic prizes based on their total donations. Participants will get the benefit of exercise and have fun as part of the Medical Center’s team while supporting lifesaving cardiovascular research and education.

The walk begins at 2 p.m. (with registration at 1 p.m.), is less than three miles, and usually takes about 90 minutes to complete. A shorter route of approximately one mile is also available. To join an existing team, form your own team, or to register as an individual, please contact Mitzi Jones at the American Heart Association at 717-730-1781 or e-mail mitzi.jones@heart.org.
