The Healthy For Good Heart & Stroke Walk is a fun way to invest in your health and that of future generations, while honoring those who have been impacted by heart disease, stroke and congenital heart defects.
Organizers are encouraging participants to keep ‘heartwalking’ throughout the year. Heartwalking is more than raising money for the cause or going for a walk, it’s an ongoing, personal commitment to move more by taking small, consistent steps to being Healthy For Good.
- The Healthy for Good Heart & Stroke Walk is a 5K (3.1 mile) non-competitive walk. This year’s Heart & Stroke Walk features a Kids Zone and food tent with light refreshments in the festival area for all participants. Dogs are also welcome, with a watering hole being provided for our K9 friends. There will also be a participant water station along the walk route and one within the festival area.
- The Healthy for Good Heart & Stroke Walk is a great place to recommit to your heart health. Remember that walking is low-risk and easy to start. It can help keep you fit and reduce your risk of serious diseases, like heart disease, stroke, diabetes and more. A regular walking program can also improve your cholesterol profile, lower blood pressure, increase your energy and stamina, and prevent weight gain.
