On behalf of the American Heart Association (AHA) and Johns Hopkins Medicine, I would like to invite you to take part in fighting heart disease and stroke at the upcoming Heart Walk. Johns Hopkins has a long history of supporting the Greater Maryland Heart Walk. This year’s Heart Walk will take place on Saturday, Oct. 14, at the Camden Yards Sports Complex.

Heart disease and stroke are the two leading causes of death worldwide and, to many of us, these diseases represent a personal struggle. Whether for ourselves, our families, our friends and/or colleagues, our collective support can make a true difference in the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. Your donation to the AHA for the Heart Walk helps fund research and education, our most powerful weapons in the fight.

The AHA is working to improve the health of Marylanders through their Healthy For Good campaign. This revolutionary movement is designed to inspire our communities to create lasting change in their health and life, one small step at a time. The approach is simple: Eat smart. Add color. Move more. Be well. How can you be a conduit for this kind of health impact in the areas we serve?

  • Create a team and recruit your friends, family and colleagues to participate in an event focused on overall health and wellness.

Keep in mind that if you register now for the Heart Walk, you will receive a commemorative Hopkins T-shirt. Don’t forget to make it personal by posting your inspiration and photos to social media using #MDHeartWalk to show the community what we are doing with and for them.

If you have any questions, please contact our AHA representative, Danielle Clifford-Earles, at Danielle.Clifford@heart.org.

The only way we can spread the word is by taking a stand and walking together, because life matters. Thank you for your support.

-Charlie Reuland, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer
