Walking with a purpose
Twenty laps around the assembly center, a distance equivalent to three miles, helped raise money in support of the American Heart Association.
The volunteers came together for two main reasons — to honor survivors of heart disease and stroke, as well as the fund-raising opportunity for the AHA.
Heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 and 3 killers in the country, and the Heart Walk that was held at the TAC promotes physical activity and heart-healthy living — two things designed to help in the fight against heart disease and stroke.
