Join walkers from across our community as they step out to have fun, get inspired & support a meaningful cause. 

Thank you for your support of the American Heart Association’s 2018 Bay Area Heart Walk efforts. We celebrated our commitment to health with over 600 County employees getting out of the office and walking for their heart health last September! Additionally, with your help and participation, the County raised over $80,000 to help fuel the American Heart Association’s mission to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Results we are truly proud of!   

This year is extra special, as the County will cross the $1million fundraising mark since we began participating and will join the Million Dollar Impact Club, which consists of companies who have raised $1,000,000+ for the Bay Area Heart Walk. If we can raise $99,438 this year, we can earn a spot in the club! To achieve this important milestone, we’ve set a goal to have 40 Coaches and 660 walkers raising $100,000. Here’s how you can help:

  • Register as a Coach by May 15th  by clicking “Create A Team” at http://www2.heart.org/site/TR?fr_id=4226&pg=company&company_id=211345.
    • Being a Coach requires minimal time commitment, but it’s an important job. Here’s a brief description of the Coach’s role:
      • Attend the Coach kickoff luncheon on June 10th
      • Energize and encourage employees and teams to get involved by recruiting 10-15 walkers to your team to raise $2,500 collectively
  • Register as a Walker by joining a team at http://www2.heart.org/site/TR?fr_id=4226&pg=company&company_id=211345.
    • Once you've joined a team, we would ask for your help with fundraising. The AHA provides all the tools, including your personal fundraising page. Plus, we'll be here to support and encourage you along the way. 

Please check back for updates about the t-shirt, fundraisers, transportation, and more!
