This fall, we will be creating healthier communities and supporting lifesaving research by putting one foot in front of the other and walking! The Central New Jersey Heart Walk will be held on October 6 at Arm & Hammer Park, home of the Trenton Thunder in Trenton, NJ. Join us and become a Heart Walk hero.
By donating and participating at a Heart Walk, you are helping to support critical research, education and patient services. Stroke survivor Bill Magill knows just how far your support can go.
Bill had a stroke over 18 years ago in his home in Hillsborough, New Jersey. He was alone at the time and laid on the ground for over three days before he was found by police. He was rushed to the hospital and treated as quickly as possible. His recovery was long and included speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and recreational therapy. But because of lifesaving stroke research, Bill is doing well today.
Walk for survivors like Bill and walk for yourself! Be Healthy for Good – Eat Smart, Add Color, Move More and Be Well. Healthy for Good is a revolutionary movement to inspire you to create lasting change in your health and your life, one small step at a time. About one in three adults participate in NO leisure time physical activity. Simple lifestyle changes, such as eating healthy and walking 30 minutes every day, promote heart and brain health.

Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
