Do your own heart some good and help the American Heart Association in its efforts to prevent heart disease and stroke at the Erie Heart Walk on Saturday at Liberty Park on the Bayfront Parkway. Registration starts at 9 a.m., followed by the walk at 10 a.m. Participants can choose to take part in a 1-, 3- or 5-mile noncompetitive walk.
Ask your friends, family members and colleagues to sponsor your walk. The walk is free, but if you raise $100 or more, you’ll receive a T-shirt.
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer in the U.S., and stroke ranks fourth and is the leading cause of severe disability. The money raised at the walk will be used to fund research, education, and advocacy efforts of the American Heart Association.
