The Start! Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s premier fundraiser, gives people an opportunity to improve their health through walking while helping fund the fight against heart disease and stroke. Start! encourages corporations and individuals to promote physical fitness and help break down the obstacles that keep Americans from being physically active. The movement focuses on walking as an activity because it’s accessible, free and has the lowest dropout rate of any type of exercise.

Start! is sponsored nationally by Subway and locally by PHP and Parkview Health.
