The ninth annual Hearts in the Park Walk will be this Saturday, May 12. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. and the event will kick off at 9 a.m. To register online please CLICK HERE or you can register at the walk.
The walk through Allegheny Commons Park, the “heart” of Pittsburgh’s historic Northside, is open to everyone. Registration fees will support the Gerald McGinnis Cardiovascular Institute’s Center for Research and Innovation at Allegheny General Hospital. This research may lead to new treatments and medical devices that will help heart patients have more productive lives after surgery. A portion of the money raised also goes to the Allegheny Commons Steering Committee of the Northside Leadership Conference to support the restoration and rehabilitation efforts of Allegheny Commons.
During this year’s HEARTS IN THE PARK WALK you will also have the opportunity to learn about a heart-healthy lifestyle with the Prescription for a Healthy Heart Expo. The expo is free for all registered walkers and will provide education on achieving a heart-healthy lifestyle, including diet, weight control and exercise. The importance of blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol management with medications will also be featured.
