Heart & Stroke Walk

Healthy for Good is a movement that encourages Americans to lead healthier lives by delivering science-based recommendations, tools, tips and motivation to build healthier behaviors. Healthy for Good comes to life on Sunday, October 14 at Bailey Park where more than 5,000 participants will walk for heart health and raise funds for research, education and advocacy programs in our area. The walk is being led by Gregory Bray, CFO of MedCost and Dr. Julie Freischlag, CEO of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
Heart-healthy activities will begin at 1 pm and include sponsored wellness tents, a PUParazzi parade, mascot competition, live music, healthy snacks and a one-, two- or four-mile walk. The walk will kick off at 2:30 pm.
Currently, the American Heart Association is funding $1.2 million in research grants in the Triad. Your support makes this possible. Visit the Winston-Salem Heart Walk website to register.
