Walk Together, But Apart, in 2nd Virtual American Heart Association Heart Walk
With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to keep Americans distanced, the American Heart Association (AHA, www.LincolnHeartWalk.com) is embracing the new normal and moving its iconic Lincoln Heart Walk to a virtual platform for the second consecutive year. On Saturday, May 15, Heart Walk participants and teams will remain physically apart but together in their efforts to celebrate heart and stroke survivors, encourage physical activity, and raise lifesaving funds for AHA, the leading voluntary health organization focused on heart and brain health for all. Get moving at home and around your neighborhoods, follow along with the fun on Facebook (@HeartNebraska), take a walk outside, get the whole family involved with an indoor dance party, try out some new strengthening exercises, create an at-home circuit workout, or do whatever gets you moving for heart health!
“We know that COVID-19 has made it even more challenging for people who are at risk for heart disease and stroke to get out and be active,” said Lincoln Heart Walk Director Cori Lamm. “This virtual format allows everyone to continue to have fun and support our lifesaving mission, while remaining safely distanced. We are grateful for the support from our community.”
The American Heart Association is a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. To learn more or register for the virtual Lincoln Heart Walk, visit www.LincolnHeartWalk.com.

On the day of the event, everyone is encouraged to wear their Heart Walk shirts and post pictures and videos to document their activity using #LincolnHeartWalk. Money raised funds research, advocacy, CPR training, and promotion of better health.
