American Heart Association’s (AHA) Greater Baltimore Heart Walk

Once again, the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) and the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) are supporting the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Greater Baltimore Heart Walk. This year’s walk will take place on Sunday, Nov. 2, at the Camden Yards Sports Complex, Lots B&C in Baltimore, and it is more important than ever.

Jina Bacchus, work life strategies specialist, Office of Human Resource Services, has generously volunteered to coordinate UMB’s participation in the event. We need you to help us reach our 2014 goal of raising $40,000 for the American Heart Association. If you are interested in becoming a walker or team captain for the 2014 Heart Walk, please visit the Heart Walk website where you will find all of the information you need to register.

A kick-off meeting of team captains was held on July 22. If you were unable to attend this meeting and have questions, contact Jina Bacchus.

Thank you for your continued support! With your help, UMB will make a difference in the quest to improve cardiovascular health in America.
