Greater Washington Heart Walk

Did you know that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of Americans? In fact, someone dies from cardiovascular disease every 39 seconds!


The American Heart Association invites you to participate in the Greater Washington Heart Walk here in our nation's capital. On November 4, 2017 over 12,000 residents from the Metropolitan Washington, DC area will come together on the National Mall to raise awareness and funds to help fight heart disease and stroke. Heart Walk presents a wonderful opportunity for you or your group to get involved in the battle against cardiovascular disease. Activities including a health expo, kids fun zone, selfie stations and entertainment begin at 8:30 a.m. and the walk steps off at 10:00 a.m.


There are a number of volunteer opportunities available for the day of this exciting event including course marshals, set up, sponsor assistance and more. Most volunteers will be needed somewhere between 7:00 a.m. and noon. Volunteers must be 16 or older or be accompanied by an adult. Drinks and snacks will be available throughout the morning.
