We are excited to announce that we will be supporting the American Heart Association’s Wall Street Run & Heart Walk this year! By participating in this 5k run or walk, we are a part of a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives and helping New Yorkers across all five boroughs gain access to healthy food, safe places to work out, and to health care. Whether you’re a runner or a walker, together, we have the chance to show WICT NY’s long-standing commitment to improving the health of the NYC community. We hope you will join us and register for the event, have fun with friends and colleagues and burn some calories for a good cause.
To give you an idea of how our fundraising will make a difference and how every dollar counts in the fight against heart disease and stroke:
- With $500, the Association can teach more than 2,500 children how to avoid obesity and live longer, stronger lives by giving them nutrition and educational materials. Considering this generation of children is the first whose life expectancy will be less than their parents, it is imperative we help these children learn how they can be healthy starting today.
