Walk for the Heart

March 27, 2013

ST. LOUIS - Mercy is once again a major sponsor of the American Heart Association Heart Walk. This year’s Metro St. Louis event will be held May 4 at Busch Stadium. 

This year’s combined fundraising goal for Mercy Hospital St. Louis, Washington and Jefferson is $75,000. Anyone can support the walk and Mercy’s teams by purchasing a 2013 Team Mercy Heart Walk T-shirt. Each shirt is $25 and all proceeds benefit the American Heart Association. Individuals can purchase a T-shirt at the Mercy Hospital St. Louis Gift Shop or the Wellness Shoppe at Mercy Clayton-Clarkson.

Busch Stadium gates open at 7:30 a.m. the morning of the event. An opening ceremony will be held at 8:30 a.m., followed by the walk at 9 a.m. Walkers can choose a 1-mile or a 3-mile course, both ending with a lap on the field at Busch Stadium. 

You can also visit Mercy’s team page on the AHA website here to register and for more information.

Thanks for supporting the American Heart Association and Mercy.
