2009 Grand Rapids Start! Heart Walk

The Grand Rapids Start! Heart Walk on Saturday, September 19 is our "mission in action." Through the Start! Heart Walk, we can create opportunities for people to improve their health by walking and simultaneously raise funds to help fight heart disease and stroke.

Walkers can organize teams at the companies where they work or with family and friends.  Walkers ask others to support their walk effort by sponsoring them with a donation to the American Heart Association.  

Please join our 2009 Chairperson, Mike Faas, President and CEO of Metro Health Hospital at Riverside Park on September 19th.  Enter through the North entrance, Boat Launch #3, which is directly across from the Veteran's Home off of Monroe Avenue.

Register now!

"I've personally experienced the losses of my father and a dear friend due to unexpected cardiac events and know the pain that resulted. Too many area families are touched by these diseases. The funds raised from the Start! Heart Walk will play a critical role in funding research and educational programs in our community. Whether you can help a little or a lot, your involvement and help will make a big difference."
Scott Kline, Vice President of Sales, WorkSquared
2008 Start! Heart Walk Chairperson
