Exciting festivities to take place at the Heart & Stroke Walk this year:

  • Live band 
  • Heart-healthy food trucks 
  • Carnival games
  • Doggie parade

The American Heart Association is committed to making a difference across America. By working together, we can make a big impact in fighting our nation’s #1 killer.  The funds raised from this event help to fund research, education and advocacy in Forsyth County. The American Heart Association is currently funding $1.2 million in research grants at Wake Forest University School of Medicine and Wake Forest Baptist Health and recently passed a law to require all high school students be trained in CPR before they graduate high school. These are just some of the victories in our area that wouldn’t be possible without your support.

Thank you for your support.
