Tri-County Heart Walk
scheduled for Sept. 29 at YSU
YOUNGSTOWN–More than 2,000 Valley residents are expected to raise their heart rates, awareness and funds for the American Heart Association, the world’s leading voluntary health organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke, at the 2018 Tri-County Heart Walk.
The Tri-County Heart Walk begins at 10 a.m. Sept. 29 will be held at the Watson and Tressel Training Site (WATTS) at Youngstown State University. The festival area opens at 9 a.m., followed by opening ceremonies at 9:45 a.m. This year’s event aims to raise $300,000 to fight heart disease and stroke, America’s number one and number five killers, respectively. Individuals and teams can register online at heart.org/mahoningvalleywalk.
“Since the heart walk’s inception 25 years ago, mortality rates from cardiovascular disease and stroke have plummeted by 45 percent, but there is more work to be done,” said Andrew Reid, 2018 Tri-County Heart Walk chair and vice president of Heart, Lung and Vascular Services at Mercy Health. “The walk really gives us the chance to invest in our own individual health and that of future generations, while honoring the legacies of our loved ones touched by heart disease and stroke right here in our own community.”
The heart walk is locally sponsored by Steward Health Care System and Mercy Health, with media support from WKBN-27 and iHeartRadio. For information on sponsoring or participating in the heart walk contact 330-318-4463 or heart.org/mahoningvalleywalk.
