Atlanta Heart Walk

The Metro Atlanta Heart Walk is deeply embedded within Emory Healthcare culture. Every year, hundreds of Emory Healthcare employees sign-up to lead teams, raise money and walk to benefit initiatives driven by the AHA. In 2014, more than 1,250 Emory Healthcare employees walked among the 15,000 registrants, and raised $225,000, the most of any corporate sponsor in Georgia.

The AHA’s work in research and prevention aligns with the Emory Healthcare’s mission to educate health professionals and leaders for the future while pursuing discovery research in all of its forms. With 29% of Georgians reported as obese, the event is designed to help participants understand how critically important it is to incorporate as little as 30 minutes of physical activity in their daily lives to prevent cardiovascular disease.
