Five Heart Walks presented by the American Heart Association (AHA) are coming to Los Angeles County with the mission of saving lives from this country’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers – heart disease and stroke. With such high frequency, it seems that everyone has a friend or family member whose life was ended by one of these two conditions. You can take a stand and honor your loved ones by joining Team Metrolink Cares in the AHA’s fundraising event. The team is committed to raising $10,000 and participating in the Pasadena Heart Walk on Saturday, September 28 at the Rose Bowl.
This 5K Heart Walk is the first of five that will be held in LA County. The additional Heart Walks will take place in Playa Vista at Central Park on October 9; Long Beach at El Dorado Park on October 19; Antelope Valley at Pelona Vista Park on November 2; and Santa Clarita at Bridgeport Park on November 9.
Proceeds from all Heart Walks go towards AHA’s mission to save lives. AHA does this through research to better understand how heart disease and strokes can be stopped and public health education to help the public understand and reduce risk factors in their own bodies.
Metrolink is encouraging riders to participate in a Heart Walk in support of the American Heart Association’s mission to save lives and also in support of healthy living. Encouraging physical well-being aligns with Metrolink’s commitment to improving the lives and well-being of everyone.
