American Heart Association 2011 Heart Walk

Submitted By Washington Hospital Healthcare System

Washington Hospital invites community members to participate in the American Heart Association's (AHA) Heart Walk on Saturday, October 15, 2011, at Lake Elizabeth, Central Park, Fremont. Co-sponsored by the Washington Township Medical Foundation, the event will take place from 8 to 11 a.m. The event opens to participants at 7:15 a.m.

Attendees have the option of taking part in a one- or three-mile walk and the event will also feature heart health education booths including health screenings, information on CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and general information for people to live a healthier lifestyle.

The free event's goal is to raise awareness of heart disease and to provide a healthy, fun way of promoting overall health and helping to prevent heart disease in our community.

Community members can spend a morning in the park and support a great cause by joining an existing Washington Hospital or Washington Township Medical Foundation team, or create their own. For team information, visit http://tinyurl.com/3svgzj4. Alternatively, just come to the event, enjoy the health fair, walk around the lake and have a great time.
