Knoxville Heart Walk goes virtual

Living East Tennessee

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – The Greater Knoxville Heart Walk Digital Experience is a fun and meaningful way to celebrate heart and stroke survivors, raise lifesaving funds and encourage physical activity.

“Now, more than ever, we’re all looking for ways to connect with others, stay active and stay encouraged,” said Christian Corts, Heart Challenge Chair and Regional President at Truist. “This virtual format allows everyone to continue to have fun and support our lifesaving mission, while adapting to spending more time at home. We are grateful for the support from our community and can’t wait to see how everyone makes the Heart Walk their own.”

On Saturday, September 12 in the Knoxville area Heart Walk participants and teams will not physically meet but are invited to get moving at home or around the neighborhood starting at 9 a.m.
