Four weeks & counting…….

2013 Metro Atlanta Heart Walk..

 

Saturday, October 12th, 2013: 8:00am: Atlantic Station. Registration is FREE.

My fourth year participating in the event. The Walk Route : 5K (3.1 miles). 

Donations will support funding for heart/stroke research.

I’m walking as a tribute to every woman, man & child affected by heart/stroke disease.
