Now you can win big by entering the American Heart Association’s Start! Walking Video Challenge powered by PHP and Parkview Health. Show us why you or your company is participating in the Start! Heart Walk or how you are getting active. We want to hear from executives, team captains, walkers, youth groups, and more!

Here’s how to enter:

  • Create a video (up to 4 minutes) that shows how you get moving
  • Upload your video to YouTube (www.youtube.com) or your company’s website
  • Email the web link of your video to Wendy King at wendy.king@heart.org
  • You may also post your video on your Heart Walk company page and your company website
  • Submissions must be received by August 25, 2010

If we select your video, you’ll win lunch for you and 15 of your friends and an exciting Start! prize pack. Plus, your video will be shown on the Parkview Field’s Jumbotron during the American Heart Association’s Start! Heart Walk! The Start! Heart Walk will be held on Saturday, September 18.
