When you join a Heart Walk, you become a part of saving lives. At the Shoreline Heart Walk, we will be creating healthier communities and supporting lifesaving research simply by walking! Small steps—both the kind we take and the kind we make—lead to big gains. The Walk will be held on October 13 at the Asbury Park Boardwalk.

Join us and become a Heart Walk hero! By walking, you help to support critical research, education and patient services. All of which can make a huge impact, especially to survivors like Meadow Gogliormella.

Meadow was born with a congenital heart defect called hypoplastic left heart syndrome, leaving the left side of her heart severely underdeveloped. At 13-years-old, Meadow has undergone 3 multistage intervention procedures as well as one open-chest and two open-heart surgeries. None of this stops Meadow from living a full and happy life or from walking with us at the Shoreline Heart Walk!

Meadow is walking for children like her, she wants them to know they are not alone. Walk for survivors like Meadow and walk for yourself! Be Healthy for Good – Eat Smart, Add Color, Move More and Be Well. Healthy for Good is a revolutionary movement to inspire you to create lasting change in your health and your life, one small step at a time. About one in three adults participate in NO leisure time physical activity. Simple lifestyle changes, such as eating healthy and walking 30 minutes every day, promote heart and brain health.

Join the American Heart Association in our mission to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives by Heartwalking this fall.
