Main Line Health Center at Exton Square February 4, 2015 News Releases

Main Line Health and the Lankenau Heart Institute kicked off Super Bowl Sunday on February 1 with a Super Walk held at the Main Line Health Center at Exton Square. Over 200 community members put on their sneakers and engaged in a heart-healthy walk throughout the Exton Square Mall. The event included a special guest appearance by NBC10 meteorologist Glenn “Hurricane” Schwartz, kids’ activities, including face painting, and a health fair. In addition, 175 pounds of canned goods were collected for the Chester County Food Bank.

Heart disease is the #1 killer of men and women. As a leader in the delivery of cardiovascular care, the Lankenau Heart Institute, part of Main Line Health, partners with the community to offer educational programs and activities that spread the word about heart disease. The Super Walk is designed to get the community moving and on the road to heart health.
