CALLING ALL HEART WALK VOLUNTEERS

The Metro Detroit Heart Walk will be held on Saturday, May 20th on the campus of Wayne State University. Come rain or shine, we need committed volunteers to help make this year’s walk experience fun and successful. Creative minds and helpful hands are all welcome, but we will be doing things a little differently this year. Volunteers will meet monthly and will be required to touch base with us often. Do not fret, we have jobs for everyone. If you are interested in becoming a part of our Heart Walk Experience Volunteer Committee, please email Laura.Elsenety@heart.org with your information. We can’t wait to work with you!

For more information regarding the walk, please visit www.miheartwalk.org.
