First Local Heart Walk
The Southern New England Heart Walk is coming for the first time to Dartmouth, MA! They are offering a new "heart and survivors" walk route in addition to the 3.5-mile route!
The dean of local community health awareness, Dr. Michael Rocha, cardiologist, appeared on the Phil Paleologos Morning Show to talk about the upcoming event. Corporations, businesses, family and friends form teams to help raise awareness in the fight against Heart Disease and Stroke. Often not connected to a company's fundraising efforts, many Community Teams raise money in honor or memory of a loved one.
