Heart Walk Kick-Off event on June 28 at Endless Summer

The American Heart Association as well as Santa Barbara community members and business leaders will participate in a Heart & Stroke Walk kick-off event at the Endless Summer Bar-Cafe in anticipation of the Santa Barbara Heart & Stroke Walk. Complimentary heart-healthy appetizers will be provided courtesy of Endless Summer Bar-Cafe, as attendees learn more about forming a team, recruiting team members and fundraising tips! The Heart Walk is sponsored nationally by Subway and locally by Yardi Systems, Inc., Wells Fargo and Union Bank.

More than 1,000 people from Santa Barbara and nearby cities are expected to participate in the 2017 Santa Barbara Heart & Stroke Walk. The 5K walk and run encourages healthy habits while raising funds to support the AHA’s research and education efforts to fight heart disease and stroke – the nation’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers. The Santa Barbara Heart & Stroke Walk/5K Run will take place on Saturday, September 23, 2017.

This event empowers community members to take charge of their health while raising critical funds for the fight to end heart disease and stroke, the leading cause of death in Santa Barbara County. For more information or to register for the Heart & Stroke Walk, visit www.sbheartwalk.com
