How can you make a positive difference in the lives of your friends, family and co-workers? Join the Heart Walk and raise money to help the Vermont Chapter of the American Heart Association. The Heart Walk will kick off the 25th annual Vermont 50 Plus & Baby Boomers EXPO on Saturday, Feb. 15, 2020 at the University Mall in South Burlington.

“We encourage everyone to come out to support the Heart Association’s local chapter to raise money to support all of the amazing things that this organization does for our community,” said Marianne Apfelbaum, co-producer of the EXPO. “It is very easy to sign up as an individual or a team by visiting https://vermont50plusexpo.com/ and clicking on the red “Walk” button. The walk is all indoors and will be a fun and healthy way to help raise money for a great cause.”

Heart Walks are the signature community events for the American Heart Association’s Healthy for GoodTM movement, which encourages Americans to lead healthier lives by delivering science-based recommendations, tools, tips and motivation to build healthier behaviors.  The walk also raises funds to support the fight against heart disease and stroke – our nation’s No. 1 and No. 5 leading causes of death. 

Simple lifestyle changes, such as eating healthy and walking 30 minutes every day, promote heart and brain health. The Vermont 50 Plus & Baby Boomers EXPO supports the American Heart Association’s mission to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.
