Wellington Team To Take Part In Heart Walk

The Village of Wellington will join thousands of Palm Beach County residents in an effort to stop America’s No. 1 killer: heart disease. The Palm Beach County Heart Walk will take place on Saturday, Sept. 26 at the Meyer Amphitheater in downtown West Palm Beach. Festivities start at 8 a.m., and walkers take off at 9 a.m.

Local survivors, doctors and those passionate about the cause will unite to raise money and awareness for cardiovascular diseases and stroke. There will be a tribute wall where those who have lost loved ones can write their names. Heart disease survivors will be wearing red baseball hats, and stroke survivors will be wearing white baseball hats.

The American Heart Association’s Heart Walk campaign aims to promote healthy lifestyle choices and create opportunities for people to improve their cardiovascular health. The campaign goal is $700,000, and every donation helps the association to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke. For more info., visit www.palmbeachheartwalk.org.
