The Greater Westerly Heart Walk brings hundreds of walkers together to be Healthy For Good, a movement designed to rally millions of Americans to live healthier lives, inspire a lasting change and unify people around the simple idea that making a small change today can create a difference for a generation to come.

The Heart Walk features a 2-mile walk and a 5-mile walk route, a family friendly atmosphere with games, demonstrations and healthy snacks. This year’s goal is to raise $50,000 in support of the mission of the American Heart Association.

The Greater Westerly Heart Walk helps fund research, advocacy campaigns and helps to save lives in our community and around the world. Dollars raised by the American Heart Association have led to breakthroughs such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), microsurgery, heart valve replacement, coronary bypass surgery, the pacemaker and drug treatments for high blood pressure and congestive heart failure.

The American Heart Association gives thanks to all of our sponsors including Westerly Hospital, YMCA, Westerly Community Credit Union, Maxson Automatic Machinery Company and the Sun Media Group.
