The American Heart Association, the leading voluntary health organization focused on heart and brain health for all, will host the return of the Broward Heart Walk on March 13, beginning at 8 a.m.
Individual walkers and teams will gather at Nova Southeastern University to celebrate heart and stroke survivors, raise lifesaving funds, and encourage physical activity. This year’s theme, Heart Walk Here, invites participants to walk on the event path or to create a path of their own. From parks and parkways to tucked away trails, participants are invited to Heart Walk at any location that inspires their heart health. Heart Walk Here is led by Andrew Koenig, CEO of City Furniture.
“City’s commitment to the fight against heart disease is part of our company’s DNA. Over the years, City’s fundraising initiatives have allowed our customers and associates to get involved and make the biggest impact possible against heart disease, while increasing awareness about heart-healthy living,” said Koenig. “Together with the American Heart Association, our combined army of passionate Heart Walk participants and CITY advocates, customers and associates will be united in the fight against heart disease, impacting more lives and having a positive influence in the community.”
Longtime sponsor, Rita Case, president and CEO of the Rick Case Automotive Group, talked about the importance of heart health in the community. “Heart disease impacts every South Florida community,” Case said. “Every Rick Case dealership will have a team walking to raise dollars that support our local American Heart Association.”
