The American Heart Association’s Tucson’s Heart & Stroke Walk Digital Experience Continues to Fund Lifesaving Research
The American Heart Association, the leading voluntary health organization focus on heart and brain health for all, is continuing to embrace the digital format for the 2021 Tucson Heart & Stroke Walk Digital Experience.
The Tucson Heart & Stroke Walk is a fun and meaningful way to celebrate heart and stroke survivors, raise lifesaving funds and encourage physical activity.
The Tucson Heart & Stroke Walk Digital Experience culminates on Saturday, April 24 as we celebrate the grand efforts of the community to raise lifesaving funds for our top health threats – heart disease and stroke. On April 24, Southern Arizona walkers and teams are invited to get moving at home or around their neighborhood starting at 9 a.m. To walk with us virtually, visit @AHAArizona on Facebook. From there, participants can stay up to date with healthy at home tips and encourage friends and family to join in a heart healthy walk. Everyone is encouraged to post pictures and videos to document your activity using #TUCHeartWalk.
Participants can also get moving by taking part in the Move More Activity Challenge throughout the month of April. To join the Challenge and track progress, all that they need to do is register for the walk at TucsonHeartWalk.org and download the Heart Walk App on their mobile device.
“Chairing the 2021 Tucson Heart & Stroke Walk has been an eye-opening experience for us in regard to the heart and brain health needs of our community members, especially during this challenging year,” said Steve and Suzanna Pangburn, Tucson Heart & Stroke Walk Chairs. “This virtual format allows everyone to continue to support our lifesaving mission, from the safety of their own home. We are grateful for the support from this community and can’t wait to see how everyone makes the Heart & Stroke Walk their own.”
The Tucson Heart & Stroke Walk is locally sponsored by Arizona Complete Health, Tucson Medical Center, Pima Heart and Vascular, Brookline College, Casino del Sol, citi, Kindred at Home, Niantic, Inc., Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Pima Community College.
The funds raised from the Tucson Heart & Stroke Walk go towards research, advocacy, CPR training, and to promote better health. Visit www.tucsonheartwalk.org to learn more.
