The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association's premiere event for raising funds to save lives from this country's No. 1 and No. 5 killers - heart disease and stroke. Designed to promote physical activity and heart-healthy living, the Heart Walk creates an environment that's fun and rewarding for the entire family.

This year, more than 1 million walkers will participate in nearly 340 events. When you join Heart Walk, you join more than a million people in hundreds of cities across America in taking a stand against heart disease and helping save lives! Walk with friends, family, coworkers or strangers you'll bond with along the way. Any way you choose to do it, your heart will thank you for it!
It's easy to get started:

Companies throughout the nation are making a huge impact on our cause.  In addition to raising money for the American Heart Association's lifesaving research and programs, the Heart Walk provides direct benefits to your company and co-workers. Learn More

Often not connected with a company team, Community Teams are made up of friends and family committed to making a difference in the fight against Heart Disease and Stroke. Many Community Teams are formed to raise money for American Heart Association or American Stroke Association in honor or memory of a loved one. Learn more
