America's Greatest Heart Run Walk season kicks off

By SPENCER DAVIDSON

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Locals gathered at the Masonic Care Community to begin planning for "America's Greatest Heart Run Walk," Thursday.

The press conference held in Utica was a way to officially kick off the season of preparation for the local Heart Run Walk.

It was a way to bring together volunteers, organizers, and those who have been affected by heart disease together in order to honor what has become a fixture in the Mohawk Valley over the course of many years.

Also, the meeting served as a platform to announce the monetary goal the event will attempt to gain for 2014, and a way to lay out some goals of how this event can help to improve overall health in the region.

The Run Walk will take place on March 1st this year.
