Heart Walk teams forming. Want to be a captain?

UNCG faculty, staff and students have been strong supporters of the American Heart Association Heart Walk for many years by raising money and walking.

Right now, UNCG Heart Walk teams are forming. If you are interested in starting a campus team or joining an existing team, now is a good time.

The walk will be be held Saturday, May 16, at 8 a.m. at UNCG. It will have thousands of fellow walkers.

Some people run it, some people bring dogs, strollers, etc. It’s low pressure. Teams are formed mostly online. Each team needs a captain who simply gathers team members. UNCG usually fields about five teams, ranging from 10 to 40 members. A team can be of any size and can have non-UNCG members (so family and friends are welcome). Each walker will get a T-shirt to wear day of the event. Each UNCG team captain is invited to a lunch here on campus, to meet with the walk director for updates.
