UofL Deans Toni Ganzel, Gerald T. Bradley, Anne Larson and David Jenkins hosted kick-off breakfasts in early August to lead UofL’s Heart Walk campaign toward its fundraising goal of $75,000. In collaboration with AVP Patricia Benson and the Get Healthy Now team, momentum is gaining for the American Heart Association’s premier event, the Kentuckiana Heart Walk, to be held on Saturday, Sept. 22 at Waterfront Park.
This year, for the first time ever, Team Captains can join a Leadership Society for showing their commitment to the Heart Walk. Captains who are able to form a 10-person team, lead that team to $1,500 in donations, make a personal donation of any size, and who provide encouragement and support for their team will become a member of the Leadership Society and be rewarded with a gift from the American Heart Association and a lunch with campus leaders. More information is available on the UofL Heart Walk homepage.
