Find a Heart Walk near you!

The Start! Heart Walk brings communities together in celebration of progress in the fight against heart diseases and stroke. This inspirational day is filled with energy, excitement, and hope!

The funds you raise in Start! Heart Walk will support projects like these:

  • Putting up-to-the-minute research into doctors' hands so they can better prevent and treat heart disease among patients

  • Groundbreaking pediatric heart and stroke research to help save the lives of the 36,000 babies born with heart defects each year

  • Getting live-saving information to those who need it most--information that can save a life, like how to eat better, how to recognize the warning signs of a heart attack, and how to talk to a doctor about critical health choices.

The American Heart Association's Start! Heart Walk has a new website that now makes it easier to find cities and nationwide teams. This site also hosts a community team page with heart health information, provides opportunities to share personal health stories, and sends fun e-cards to friends and family. Visit now at!

The American Heart Association recommends regular physical activity in order to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. Sign up for a Heart Walk today and don't forget to visit the You're the Cure booth!
