First Coast Heart Walk rescheduled for Nov. 19


In consideration of the ongoing Hurricane Irma recovery efforts in the Greater Jacksonville community, the American Heart Association announced last week that the First Coast Heart Walk – originally scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 16 – has been rescheduled for Sunday, Nov. 19.

Although the date has changed, the Heart Walk will still take place at Metropolitan Park at 1410 Gator Bowl Drive in Jacksonville as planned. Activities will begin at 8 a.m., and the walk will begin at 9:30 a.m.

The American Heart Association reinforced its commitment to the fight against cardiovascular diseases and stroke, and encouraged Heart Walk participants to join local relief efforts and help one another through this difficult time.
