UofL JA Department” is walking again this year in support of the American Heart Association's annual Heartwalk 2014.  We need you to donate, whatever you can spare, to make a difference in lives affected by heart disease.  We all have someone in our lives who has been touched by this. Help us help others, GIVE FROM THE HEART!  See Karen Thompson in the reception area and it will make your heart feel better!  Pay it forward, it really works!

For the week of September 8-12, our Karen Thompson was one of the top three fundraisers of the UofL 2014 Heartwalk Campaign and for her efforts she won access to a private box at Churchill Downs during the fall meet! Well done Karen!
