Healthy doesn't have to be spooky! Over 40,000 Houstonians will lace up their sneakers the weekend before Halloween to rally behind the American Heart Association's fight against heart disease and stroke at the 2017 Houston Healthy for Good Heart Walk on Oct. 28, 2017. For the second year in a row, the Houston Heart walk will take place in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center.
The Houston Heart Walk is a free, family-friendly 5K promoting heart-healthy living while raising funds critical to supporting cardiovascular research and education programs right here in Houston. Participants are encouraged to make teams and wear their costumes.
Heart Walk is the signature fundraising event of the American Heart Association's Healthy for Good campaign. Healthy For Good is designed to inspire all Americans to live healthier lives and create lasting change. It focuses on the simple idea that making small simple changes today can create a difference for generations to come. The approach is simple: Eat smart. Add color. Move more. Be Well. The Texas Medical Center is the local Healthy For Good platform sponsor. The fundraising goal for the Houston Heart Walk is $3 million.
