More than 2,000 Lincoln area residents are expected to raise their heart rates and more than $140,000 on Saturday, May 19 for the American Heart Association, the world’s leading voluntary organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. The Association’s 19th annual Lincoln Healthy For Good™ Heart Walk begins at 9 a.m. with the walk kicking off at 10:30 a.m. at Haymarket Park. Individuals, teams and companies can sign up in advance at LincolnHeartWalk.com for the non-competitive, 3-mile walk.
New to the team is this year’s Lincoln Heart Walk Chair, The Voice’s Hannah Huston. Huston will be kicking off the event by singing the National Anthem and will also lead the walk.
“We are so pleased to have Hannah Huston on board this year,” said Jodi Renee Giron, development director for the American Heart Association – Lincoln. “Her fantastic energy along with her enthusiasm for our community’s health and wellness made her the perfect fit for our heartwalking campaign!”
“I am thrilled to be on board. The Healthy For Good Heart Walk is a fun way to invest in your health and that of future generations, while honoring those who have been impacted by heart disease, stroke and congenital heart defects,” said Huston.
