At Main Line Health, we are committed to improving the heart health and overall wellness of our employees and their families, our patients and the community. Mark your calendars and join Main Line Health as we participate in the American Heart Association (AHA) Philadelphia Heart Walk on Saturday, November 2, 2019 at Citizens Bank Park.
The Philly Heart Walk is part of a collaborative, nationwide event to raise awareness and funds to support the AHA's mission of building healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke, the #1 and #5 killers of all Americans. The Heart Walk promotes physical activity and healthy-living while creating a fun environment for everyone. As the Greater Philadelphia Go Red for Women sponsor, we’ve made significant strides in advancing the AHA’s mission. With your help, we can continue this progress.
