The American Heart Association’s 2012 Nashville Heart Walk is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 6.
The fun gets under way at 8 a.m. at Campus Rec Field No. 1 at the corner of 25th Avenue and Children’s Way.
The walk, which includes both a 5K and a 1-mile route, begins at 10 a.m. Festivities, including music and food, continue until noon.
All registered team walkers will receive a T-shirt from their team captains.
“The Heart Walk is important to Vanderbilt on several levels, and it directly supports our research efforts,” said Keith Churchwell, M.D., executive director and chief medical officer of Vanderbilt Heart.
Vanderbilt has about 170 registered teams.
“Vanderbilt plays an important role in the success of the Heart Walk,” said Kelley Tune, AHA vice-president of the Heart Walk. “We are looking forward to a strong showing from them again this year.”
Participants should park in the Shuttle Lot off Natchez Trace.
