Hundreds of Rutherford County area residents are expected to raise their heartrates and funds for the Rutherford Country American Heart Association.
The Healthy for Good Heart Walk is part of The American Heart Association’s Healthy for Good movement which encourages Americans to lead healthier lives by delivering science-based recommendations, tools, tips and motivation to build healthier behaviors. Healthy for Good is a movement designed to rally millions of Americans to live healthier lives, inspire a lasting change, and unify people around the simple idea that making a small change today can create a difference for generations. This movement comes to life each year in 300 American cities when it is celebrated at the Healthy for Good Heart Walk. This staple event is a fun way to invest in your health and that of future generations, while honoring those who have been impacted by heart disease, stroke and congenital heart defects. The American Heart/Stroke Association encourages everyone to begin “heartwalking” and make an ongoing, personal commitment to move more, raise your heartrate with regular exercise and be Healthy for Good.
