Join the 2014 Penn Medicine Heart Walk Team


Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the U.S. Approximately 600,000 people die of heart disease annually; that’s one in every four deaths! Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S., affecting about 800,000 Americans each year. Join the fight against heart disease and stroke and walk with Penn Medicine colleagues, the American Heart Association, and more at the 16th American Heart Association’s Philadelphia Heart Walk.

The 2014 Annual Heart Walk is Saturday, November 8, at Citizens Bank Park. This year, thePenn Medicine challenge is to raise $160,000 and recruit more employees, patients, friends and families to walk than ever before.

By participating in the Heart Walk, you will help fund groundbreaking research to develop new therapies and better treatment options for cardiovascular disease and stroke. Penn Medicine is a major recipient of these funds and is awarded more research dollars than any other hospital or health system in the region.

To become a team captain or register as a walker, please visit here, or contact Cara Feldman, Business Development director for the American Heart Association, at 215-575-5241 or

If you have any questions contact PAH Heart Walk Team Leaders, John Wierzbowski, manager, Safety and Emergency Preparedness, and Mary Hammond, clinical research coordinator, Cath Lab.
