September 16, 2013 - 2013 Alabama Gulf Coast Heart Walk
Article

The 2013 Alabama Gulf Coast Heart Walk will be held in Mobile County on Saturday, Sept. 21, on the University of South Alabama’s main campus. Festivities begin at 8 a.m. and are followed by the Heart Walk at 9 a.m.

Because heart disease is the number one killer of Americans, this event encourages exercise as part of a heart-healthy lifestyle. It is the American Heart Association’s (AHA) signature fundraising affair, in which the proceeds from over 1,500 local walkers from businesses, schools, organizations, family, and friends, as well as people across the country raise funding for lifesaving research, educational programs and advocacy component of the AHA.

Teams of businesses or organizations are encouraged to participate. A team is comprised of 15 or more registered walkers or runners. Another way to support the Heart Walk is to become a sponsor by providing donations. This year’s goal is to raise $425,000.
