The American Heart Association is holding its 2016 Southern Tier Heart Walk on Sunday, April 10th on campus at SUNY Broome.  The walk begins outside of the school's Ice Center and is held entirely on campus.

The American Heart Association (AHA) held its kickoff for the walk Wednesday evening at the Decker Science Center.  This year's Heart Walk Chairman is Mario DiFulvio, President and CEO of Horizons Federal Credit Union.

The kickoff reception included volunteers, team captains and corporate donors.  The Southern Tier Heart Walk raised over $200,000 last year.  Funds raised by the walk go to help in the fight against heart disease and stroke.
