The 24th annual Heart Walk to benefit the American Heart Association was held yesterday at Binghamton University.  1500 walkers took part in the event and raised $200,000 to help in research and education to help in the fight against heart disease and stroke.

The walk was held on campus at Binghamton University with many activities inside the Events Center prior to the opening ceremonies.  There were health screenings, heart healthy food and refreshments and entertainment indoors, a karate demonstration outdoors and then the walk itself.

Heart disease  is the nation’s number one killer.  Stroke is the number four killer according to research done by the American Heart Association.  The Heart Association will utilize the funds raised to work toward its mission of building healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

The American Heart Association is still accepting donations to add to the walk total.  You can donate at:  SouthernTier HeartWalk.org.
