If you are interested in supporting the American Heart Association and getting a little heart healthy exercise yourself, sign up to participate in the American Heart Association Kansas City Heart Walk with Southcreek tenant TEKsystems! The walk itself is either 1 mile or 4 miles, and the whole event will have a festive atmosphere with free giveaways, face painting, booths, local mascots, and other activities for participants to enjoy. It is a great opportunity for friends and family to come together for a fun event and a good cause! 10,000 people total are expected to participate in this opportunity to both pledge to live a healthier lifestyle and to fundraise for research that could save lives. Here is some information about the event:
Date: May 19, 2012
Location: Theis Park
7:30 a.m. – Festivities Begin
8:45 a.m. – Warm Up
9:00 a.m. – Walk
There is no fee to participate in this event. Participants who fundraise $100 will be eligible for an American Heart Association t-shirt.
In addition to recruiting walkers for their team, TEKsystem’s goal is to raise $10,000. They have turned fundraising into a competition between 7 teams in their office to see who can raise the most money. If you cannot participate in the actual walk, TEKsystems would love your financial support! You can make a donation on their fundraising page.
