American Heart Association, Abrazo hosting 2nd annual West Valley Heart Walk in Goodyear

Posted

The American Heart Association announced Monday that it will partner with Abrazo Health to host the second annual West Valley Heart Walk on Saturday, Nov. 16, at Goodyear Civic Square.

The West Valley Heart Walk leverages the vital West Valley community's strengths and the impact it can make on local lives. It raises money to fund research and education and advocate for heart health. Registration is free, and participants can start a team, join a team, or join as an individual.

“As one of Arizona’s major health care providers, Abrazo Health recognizes the importance of good health in our community and participating in the West Valley Heart Walk helps make us all better together,” said Hans Driessnack, CEO of Abrazo West Campus in Goodyear.

The West Valley Heart Walk on Nov. 16 is more than just a walk. It's a day filled with activities and entertainment, all aimed at promoting heart health. The event kicks off with a 5K walk and a 1-mile survivor miracle mile. Festivities start at 9 a.m., with the opening ceremonies at 9:30 a.m. The walk itself begins at 10 a.m. and is followed by health activities and entertainment, ensuring a fun-filled day for all participants.

Founded in 1924, the American Heart Association is celebrating 100 years of dedication to building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Abrazo Health is one of the leading health systems in Arizona, with a growing heart and vascular services program at Abrazo West Campus in Goodyear.

Funds are critically needed to fight the no. 1 and no. 5 killers in the nation, heart disease and stroke, according to the American Heart Association. West Valley Heart Walk donations will help save the lives of adults struggling with heart disease and fund new heart and stroke medical breakthroughs.

West Valley businesses and residents are encouraged to save the date and plan to help rally the West Valley around the community impact of heart disease. To register for the West Valley Heart Walk, visit westvalleyheartwalk.org.
