Charlie Strong request for Heart Walk participants
You may have seen me in this year’s Heart Walk PSA on TV, as I am personally very passionate about the work done by the American Heart Association In fact, last year I was the Honorary Chair of the event. I would like to personally encourage each of you to participate in this year’s Heart Walk for the American Heart Association on Saturday, September 24th at 8:00 am at Waterfront Park’s Great Lawn. You can form a team or join a team by following this link to our University of Louisville fundraising web page for the Heart Walk: www.heartwalk.kintera.org/kentuckianaky/uoflcampus .
The Heart Walk is the largest fundraiser for the AHA and raises funds for life-saving research, education and advocacy. The partnership between the American Heart Association and the University of Louisville remains strong. Currently, the University of Louisville receives $1,600,000 in research from the American Heart Association.
I would love to see UofL have the most participants of any organization on the day of the Heart Walk. The goal is to raise $10,000 with over 275 walkers. To date, we have 51 walkers recruited, so we need everyone to get excited, form your teams and help make this a huge success!
