Sep. 6—Over 7,500 greater Atlanta residents are expected to raise heart health awareness and funds for the American Heart Association's 2022 Greater Atlanta Heart Walk on Sept. 10 at 8:30 a.m. at the Battery Atlanta.
This year, the event will feature live music, sponsor giveaways, healthy snacks and a special tribute area.
About 2,150 Americans die from heart disease from cardiovascular disease daily — the number one killer in the U.S. Stroke is also a leading cause of severe disability and claims the lives of nearly 219,000 each year.
Greater Atlanta Heart Walk participants and teams are invited to celebrate heart and stroke survivors, raise lifesaving funds and take steps to improve heart health by walking at the event.
Each time someone laces up their shoes or forms a team to participate in the Heart Walk, they are instrumental in innovative breakthroughs. Every donation helps create new technologies such as the artificial heart valve, cholesterol drugs, stents and the mechanical heart pump which help extend the life of patients.
Individuals and teams can register online at www.GreaterAtlantaHeartWalk.org or call 678-224-2000 for more information.
