Heart Walk is still on! (Virtually)

By participating in the Heart Walk, you’re joining a million Heart Walk Heroes from across the nation raising funds for lifesaving science. Science that can teach us all how to live longer and be Healthy For Good.

Although we can't walk together in person this year, you can still join your local Heart Walk, fund raise and give support to the American Heart Association in the fight against COVID-19.

Together, we'll protect the hearts we love that are the most vulnerable during this extraordinary time.
