The American Heart Association’s 2013 Greater Nashville Heart Walk was held Saturday, Oct. 12, on Vanderbilt’s campus.
Once again, Vanderbilt University was among the top fundraisers for the event, bringing in more than $100,000.
While the numbers are still being tallied, early tabulation indicates that more than $1.7 million was raised in Nashville, making it the 13th largest Heart Walk in the country.
