The Amer­i­can Heart Asso­ci­a­tion (AHA) is spon­sor­ing the North­west Ohio Heart Walk on Sat­ur­day in Napoleon.

More than 150 peo­ple will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in the event which starts with reg­is­tra­tion at 8 a.m. tomor­row morn­ing in Napoleon. The walk will begin at 9 a.m. and refresh­ments will be offered along the route, includ­ing water and heart-healthy snacks.

It’s a non-competitive, three-mile and one-mile walk with teams of employ­ees from local com­pa­nies and other orga­ni­za­tions. Prizes will be given to the top fundrais­ers for the event.

The Heart Asso­ci­a­tion says that research has shown walk­ing is the sin­gle most effec­tive form of exer­cise to achieve heart health. The ben­e­fits of walk­ing and mod­er­ate phys­i­cal activ­ity for as lit­tle as 30 min­utes each day can help reduce the risk of heart dis­ease.

To par­tic­i­pate in the Heart Walk, you still have time to call Beth at 419–740-6180.
