Dear Team EHC,

Emory Healthcare is very proud to participate in the annual Atlanta Heart Walk. This year’s event takes place on Saturday, September 26, at Centennial Olympic Park. Please consider walking with Team EHC!

The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s premiere event that brings communities together to raise funds and celebrate progress in the fight against this country’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers, heart disease and stroke. Emory Healthcare has committed to raising $200,000 through our generous employees and our networks. We have been the No. 1 fundraising team for the Atlanta Heart Walk for more than a decade – and, together, we can continue to carry on this outstanding tradition!

The Heart Walk is a great opportunity to have fun with colleagues, family and friends – all while being physically active and raising money for a great cause. Your participation will help us raise even more in our fight to save lives. If you are interested in taking on a leadership role and serving as a team captain, please register your team online or contact our AHA Team to register.
