Don't Miss the Virtual AHA Heart Walk and Run June 20th

Heart disease never stops, so the AHA Heart Walk and Run will go on, but virtually so we can keep our community safe. MCC is a proud sponsor of the Heart Walk, which will be held on Saturday, June 20.

This is a great opportunity for the MCC community and our families to support a heartfelt community cause while staying safe. You can participate by donating to the MCC team or by walking or running in your neighborood, maintaining social distance and wearing masks.

A full roster of activities is still planned that you can join online at https://www.facebook.com /events/545236386426331/

What does going virtual mean?

  • All participants are invited to join us for opening ceremonies at 9:00 am on June 20th online and then take a walk or run through your neighborhood.
  • If June 20th doesn't work for you? Walk or run another time during the week or weekend that does! Goal for completion is 5:00pm on June 20th.
  • Engage virtually! Join our Virtual Rochester Heart Walk & Run Facebook event page where we will post content to lead you through the event
