Join the Peoria Heart & Stroke Walk

It supports the American Heart Association

As America’s top health threats, cardiovascular disease and stroke affect nearly everyone in some way. The Tri-County community will join the American Heart Association in support of the American Heart Association at the Peoria Heart & Stroke Walk on Sunday, September 24th.
 
The event will feature the Kids Heart Challenge obstacle course, a kids’ tent with super heroes, face painting and balloon art, free health screenings, fun games in an all ages Activity Zone, health education and heart-healthy food.  Walkers can also honor survivors of heart disease and stroke, and make tributes to loved ones who lost the battle. Participants will then walk from the Peoria Riverplex to the Peoria Riverfront Museum, and along the Sculpture Walk.
 
Heart disease survivors, their families and friends, and those interested in helping to fight heart disease are encouraged to participate. Community and corporate teams are encouraged to register at www.peoriaheartwalk.org. Walkers who raise over $100 will receive a t-shirt, and more prizes are awarded depending on the total amount raised.
 
The Peoria Heart & Stroke Walk is locally sponsored by OSF St. Francis Medical Center, the local sponsor for Go Red For Women, and Unity Point Health.
