Heart walk

August 24, 2011

A Walk with Heart is coming to Clarkston on Saturday, Sept. 11.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. with an inspirational rally to follow including food, music, entertainment, giveways and more. The walk kicks off at 10 a.m. and winds through the historic village streets of Clarkston.

“We’re fortunate southeast Michigan has some of the best pediatric cardiology hospitals in the country, as well as a very strong community of ‘heart families’ who offer each other support," said Sally Powers, chair and mother of a 3-year-old Coronary Heart Disease survivor.

"The Walk is an opportunity to rally together to raise awareness about the country’s number one birth defect and to raise much needed money for research."

Walk with Heart is made possible through the generous support of its many sponsors, including this year’s site sponsors: The City of the Village of Clarkston; Macy’s; Restore Sports Medicine-Orthovisc; Culver’s of Clarkston; Pepsi; and RGMay Photography LLC.
