Heart Walk this week

Staff Report

Feburary is American Heart Month. In honor of heart health awareness, the city of Tallassee is having its annual Heart Walk on Saturday, Feb. 18.

This is the sixth year of the event.

"I'd really love for people to come out," Tallassee Recreation Department director Rick Golden said. "Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in women."

The walk begins downtown behind the Chamber of Commerce on Sistrunk with two routes and a $25 fee.

"The proceeds go to the American Heart Association and the rest will be earmarked for the weight room or cardio room," Golden added.
