AHA logoThe American Heart Association 2016 Heart Walk will be held Nov. 5 in the Texas Medical Center SEL lot.

McGovern Medical School has two teams listed that volunteers can sign up to support and walk with.

Walkers are eligible for a Heart Walk T-shirt once they have raised a minimum of $100. Opening ceremonies start at 8:30 a.m., with the walk beginning at 9 a.m.

The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s premiere event for raising funds to save lives from this country’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers – heart disease and stroke. Designed to promote physical activity and heart-healthy living, the Heart Walk creates an environment that’s fun and rewarding for the entire family.
