Runners, Walkers unite with America's Greatest on the horizon

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - As has become tradition in the week leading up to America's Greatest Heart Run and Walk, the Fitness Mill held it's annual AHA New York Mills Indoor Run/Walk, Saturday.

The walk is aimed at raising money for the cause before the main event, as a way to help add to the expected total.

It also provides a way for people unable to participate in next week's event to be a part of the cause.

"Some people are going to be away and still want to participate and be a part of the big event," said Run and Walk Director, Jim Stasaitis.

All of the events surrounding the big Run and Walk, including the main event itself go towards the fight against heart disease and stroke.
