Walking for the Health of Our Community

Did you know cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of all Americans?

  • Someone dies from cardiovascular disease every 39 seconds.
  • Heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined.
  • Congenital cardiovascular defects are the most common cause of infant death from birth defects.

Duke Regional Hospital has once again teamed up with the American Heart Association to participate in the Triangle Heart Walk, and has already raised almost $7000 in lifesaving funds for the AHA!

The Triangle Heart Walk will be held this Sunday, September 28 at PNC Arena in Raleigh. Festivities begin at 12:30 pm and the walk begins at 2 pm.

The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s annual celebration to promote physical activity and heart healthy living in a fun, family- and dog-friendly environment. Many of our employees will walk in honor of a loved one who’s been affected by heart disease or stroke. Others walk simply to help make a difference in the communities we serve.
