M&I Heart Walk a success!

Heart Walk 2016

On Saturday, September 17th at Waterfront Park, M&I PhD student, Nikki Warner headed up a volunteer group from the department of Microbiology and Immunology and it's friends and family in the Kentuckiana Heart Walk, an American Heart Association event designed to raise money and awareness to fight cardiovascular disease and stroke. Nikki was happy to report that the event was a huge success:

We had 15 walkers, walked 3 miles, and raised $644!!!  This is the most we have ever raised (since I’ve been Team Captain) and it’s the most walkers we’ve ever had in one year!!  I can’t thank everyone enough for the donations!  I would like to especially thank our great walking team for getting up early and trudging through the rain!  You guys were champions!

Thank you everyone for another successful year!
