Heart Walk LogoWe are proud to be a sponsor of the American Heart Association’s 2016 Polk County Heart Walk, happening on October 1st at Mosaic Park in Bartow. As a company, we have always considered health and well-being to be of great importance and we are honored to support and volunteer at this event that has helped to change millions of lives!

#Lifeiswhy We Walk - The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s way of raising money to save lives from our nation’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers — heart disease and stroke. Donations raised will go to both the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association, which both fund life-saving research, as well as community programs and advocacy efforts. By promoting both a healthy lifestyle and exercise, the AHA hopes to build normal, healthy lives that are free of cardiovascular disease.

The Polk Heart Walk is a completely free event to attend and participate at with both a 5K and 1-mile survivor’s route around Mosaic Park. Whether you are supporting the lives of millions, friends and family, or yourself, these steps can truly make an impact and heighten awareness about heart disease and stroke in your community, and the benefits of physical activity and heart-healthy living. The AHA encourages walkers and heart disease survivors to share their story and inspire your community.

Join us on October 1st at Mosaic Park at 2250 South Floral Avenue in Bartow to help support this cause and make a difference in Polk County! If you are interested in this event and wish to participate or donate, please visit PolkHeartWalk.org or call 407-481-6309 for more information.
