Be part of the UAF Heart Walk team

The Heart Walk is a community-building, heart-healthy event that raises awareness of heart risks and raises funds for research. Heart disease and stroke are the leading killers of both men and women in the U.S., and these conditions are largely preventable.

Let's step up as leaders for heart health in our community!

The 2021 Fairbanks Heart Walk sponsored by the American Heart Association is next Saturday, Aug. 21. The walk begins at 10 a.m. at Veteran’s Memorial Park in downtown Fairbanks. 

I invite you to participate, whether you register a team as part of UAF or join friends and family, as we come together to raise funds for life-saving research, celebrate survivors and have a little fun.

Anyone who signs up as part of a UAF team will receive a UAF-branded T-shirt. Shirts will be delivered to team captains late next week. I want to thank the UAF departments that have already signed up. 

I encourage you to join me in supporting the Fairbanks Heart Walk. 

Thank you for choosing UAF.
