More by this author

The American Heart Association is gearing up for its 32nd annual Indianapolis Heart Walk. The association invites survivors of heart disease, stroke and Indiana residents interested in making a difference to Victory Field on Sept. 16.

The Indianapolis Heart Walk is composed of a 1-mile and 3-mile circuit. The event is also kid-friendly, offering a scavenger hunt and a designated child area. All activities are free of charge.

In June, the American Heart Association, often regarded as the country’s oldest voluntary organization dedicated to battling heart disease, celebrated 99 years of advocating for Hoosier heart health.

Last year, the Heart Walk of Indianapolis raised nearly $600,000 for research and education on heart disease and stroke.

Many companies and walkers have already raised hundreds of thousands of dollars ahead of this year’s event. Currently, IU Health, Franciscan Health, Hendricks Regional Health, Sun Development and Trimedx have raised more than $119,900, according to the American Heart Association website leaderboard. Fundraising teams Team Bharat Patel, Henry Hummel, Hoosier Hearts and Team Chugh have raised more than $60,000 combined.

Victory Field is located at 501 W. Maryland St. in Downtown Indianapolis. Gates open at 8 a.m. followed by the opening ceremonies at 9:40 a.m. Participants will begin the Heart Walk at approximately 10 a.m. For more information, contact the Indianapolis Heart Walk Team at 317-732-4708 or visit www.heart.org.
