While the walk is now virtual, one thing hasn’t changed – a focus on the mission and our heart and stroke survivors! Did you know this community is at a higher risk of complications from COVID-19? That means they need us now more than ever and we need to continue to raise the important funds necessary to fight heart disease and stroke. The funds raised from the Southern New England & South Coast Virtual Heart Walk go towards research, advocacy, CPR training and to promote better health. Additionally, funds raised may be donated towards the American Heart Association’s response to COVID-19 efforts. Visit www2.heart.org to learn more.
Registration is open! You can register anytime at sneheartwalk.org. Donations can also be received online at sneheartwalk.org or by texting ‘SNEWALKS’ to 41444 to donate! Any check donations can be made out to American Heart Association and uploaded via the free Heart Walk mobile app or mailed to 1 State Street, Suite 200, Providence, RI 02908.visit
