The 2015 Southern New England Heart Walk will take place in June 2015 at 8 a.m. in Providence, RI. The American Heart Association’s signature fundraising event, featuring a 2 mile or 3.5 mile walk route in downtown Providence! Participants enjoy free health screenings, health advice from experts, giveaways, a kids’ zone, and healthy snacks. Dozens of heart disease and stroke survivors of all ages attend each year, wearing red “survivor caps” and “little heart hero” capes.
Dennis Keefe, CEO of Care New England will serve as the 2015 Heart Walk Chairman.
More than 3,000 participants raised over $425,000 for the fight against heart disease and stroke last year. The American Heart Association uses the funds raised through the Heart Walk to finance cutting-edge scientific research, conduct public and professional educational programs and advocate for public health. In Massachusetts and Rhode Island alone, $27.5 million in scientific research is currently funded by the American Heart Association.
