The American Heart Association is working to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives - a world where everyone can achieve the best possible health - and it starts right here in Connecticut.

The Heart Walk is a fun family event where participants walk with friends, family members and
co-workers and get moving together as they join more than a million people in more than 300 communities across the country in taking a stand against heart disease and stroke - the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of Americans.

Every day, every place you go, the American Heart Association is there with you in your life. We make that promise to you. Please join in this journey to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Together we can make it easier to be healthy where we live, work, learn, play.
We are proud to present this unique opportunity to volunteer your time and talents at the Heart Walk...
