PALMDALE – The city of Palmdale’s Marie Kerr Park will host the American Heart Association’s Antelope Valley Heart Walk this Saturday, Nov. 7.
The annual event will include a non-competitive 5K walk/run and a festival area featuring interactive activities, health information, a Kids Zone, entertainment and more, according to organizers.
Registration and expo begin at 7:30 a.m.; an opening ceremony will be held at 9 a.m.; and the walk will begin immediately following. There is no fee to participate.
There will be a 5K and 1-mile survivor route. Participants are invited to form a team with friends, family or coworkers and register at www.heartwalkla.org. Participants will receive a free Heart Walk T-shirt when they raise $100 or more.
“Join walkers from across Antelope Valley as they step out to have fun, get inspired and support a meaningful cause,” said Palmdale’s Communications Manager John Mlynar.
The American Heart Association is the nation’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of heart disease and stroke. The money raised through the Heart Walk funds research and initiatives that promote awareness, prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, the leading killer in the United States.
