Heart Walk Coming April 9

The annual Southern Tier Heart Walk is set for Sunday, April 9 at the SUNY Broome Ice Center.  Doors open for registration and exhibits at 10 AM with the opening ceremonies beginning at 11:30 AM.  The annual event raises money for the American Heart Association to help in the fight against heart disease and stroke.

The goal for this year’s walk is $250,000.  A number of area businesses have pledged their support.  Individuals and groups are urged to participate.  Many teams form to help in raising money for the walk.

According to information provided by the American Heart Association heart disease remains the number one killer in the United States with stroke number five.  Money raised in the Southern Tier Heart Walk goes to help with education, advocacy and research.
