The 27th Annual Southern Tier Heart Walk to benefit the American Heart Association drew over 2,000 participants and raised over $230,000 to help in the fight against heart disease and stroke.  It is the second highest total of donations raised in the 27 years the walk has been held.  Walkers faced chilly temperatures but had dry conditions for the event which was held for the second consecutive year on the campus of SUNY Broome.

Money raised goes to help the American Heart Association in research and advocacy in the fight against heart disease. Numerous businesses and organizations take part in the yearly walk.  Those who wish to contribute to the American Heart Association and the Heart Walk can do so for the next 30 days at: southertierheartwalk.org.
