Heart disease is the number one killer of Americans according to the American Heart Association, and once again they are holding their annual Heart Walk fundraiser to fight this deadly disease.
We are helping out by joining the Columbia Neurosurgery Team this year. Some of us will be running and others will stick to the name of the event and walk. Heart Walks will be held in over three hundred cities across America. We are one of six teams from Columbia Presbyterian to get moving in New York City this May.
By participating, we hope to raise funds that are needed for research and education and improve our own cardiovascular health as well.
You can help too! Sponsor our team or visit the American Heart Association Donation Page. You can also join in the fun yourself or cheer from the sidelines. The Heart Walk will be held May 17, 2011 in New York City’s Financial district. Registration and activities begin at 6:45 pm at theWorld Financial Center.
Check out our Team Page to watch our team grow and our sponsorship rise!
Stay tuned as the walk/run approaches. We will tell you more about our team and which neurosurgeons will be donning their running shorts.
Thank you for your support.
