University of Miami Hospital Gears Up for 2014 Miami-Dade Heart Walk
More than 100 enthusiastic University of Miami Hospital employees gathered September 30 in the Seminar Center to rally their teams, nominate captains and snack on healthy foods in preparation for the American Heart Association’s 2014 Miami-Dade Heart Walk.
UHealth, a corporate sponsor for the Walk, is anticipating a sea of orange and green November 1 at Bayfront Park, where 600 walkers representing the University of Miami Health System are expected to turn out for a morning of fun and exercise.
Registration is still available online at www.miamidadeheartwalk.org. Be sure to select UHealth under the “Join our Team” field when registering.
The event starts at 8:30 a.m. and the walk begins at 9:30 am. Bring the whole family! Participants will receive a free UHealth Heart Aware health assessment, and can enjoy breakfast and lunch, music, dancing, and more. In addition, kids can enter costume and pumpkin decorating contests, and the event is dog friendly.
