BOISE, Idaho — Join your friends, family and co-workers for Idaho’s Heart and Stroke Walk. The walk is a community-building, heart-healthy event that raises awareness of heart risks and raises funds for research. Heart disease and stroke are the leading killers of both men and women in the U.S., and these conditions are largely preventable.
The walk will take place Saturday, May 20 at Kleiner Park in Meridian at 1900 North Records Avenue. The walk course is 2.5 miles long; a shorter 1.5 mile route is also available.
Check in for the walk begins at 8:00 AM; the walk begins at 9:00 AM. There is no registration fee but participants are encouraged to fundraise and make a personal donation to support the Heart Walk.
