Hundreds of people, including some of our friends at FOX43, took part in the 2013 Heart Walk in York County today.
The walk bring folks together to raise money for American Heart Association and to celebrate the progress the country has made in fighting heart disease and stroke. This is the second heart walk in our area this month. Those taking part raised close to 60 thousand dollars so far. Organizers are hoping to raise 110 thousand. For many walkers the event was personal.
”For the community to get behind an event like this is really important. I can speak for myself, from my own heart personally I had a brother who recently passed away at a young age from heart disease, so it’s a personal thing for me, it’s personal for a lot of the folks here.” Chris Stottlemyer, Co-Chair of 2013 Heart Walk
