The Greater Charlotte Heart walk is happening!

Pop up heart walks raise money for the American Heart Association

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Greater Charlotte Heart Walk, in its 27th year, will pop-up across the city to bring the iconic Heart Walk event to our community wherever you are. This year's new experience, Heart Walk Here, will offer start lines across the community to provide maximum flexibility while still staying safe; yet driving our community to move more and raise lifesaving funds. Cindy Noble, Chair of Greater Charlotte Heart Walk has the Why, Who, When and Where of the event.

WHY: The American Heart Association is a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. We are dedicated to ensuring equitable health in all communities.
