By  | 

On the morning of Saturday, October 16, the American Heart Association held the Northwest Harris County Heart Walk at Lone Star College – University Park located at 20515 State Highway 249 in Houston, TX.

The Northwest Harris County Heart Walk returned and brought back a one-of-a-kind experience where friends, family and colleagues joined together to move and focus on improved health, all while helping to defeat heart disease and stroke. The funds raised through the Heart Walk campaign will further the mission of the American Heart Association to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Locally, the funds support community impact work to address nutrition security, hypertension and women’s health. These have been identified as key priorities in North Houston and the propel work to accomplish the Association’s 2024 Health Equity Impact Goal, reducing barriers to health care access and quality.

Mario Garner, PhD, President of CHI St. Luke’s Vintage Hospital, was the Chair and Emcee for the Northwest Harris County Heart Walk and led the fundraising campaign to support the lifesaving work of the American Heart Association.
