Join UNCG teams for Heart and Stroke Walk; see contest details

Want to know how to join a UNCG team for the Heart Walk on campus?

The annual Greater Guilford Heart and Stroke Walk will take place Saturday, May 19. The non-competitive walk, led by the American Heart Association, has set a goal of $500,000 this year to help fund heart disease and stroke prevention and research.

Faculty, staff and students now can join and form teams for the event. On the UNCG Heartwalk site (click here), participants can register under one of the UNCG schools, or create their own team as a captain with friends.

The Triad American Heart Association has announced a contest especially for UNCG employees, to encourage coach/team sign up. The randomly selected winner will receive a $100 Target gift card and a 2-hour Ropes Course Adventure at Kersey Valley.

There are three ways to win:

1). Register as a UNCG Coach

2). Receive an additional entry by personalizing your website

3). Receive an additional entry for every walker you recruit to your team

The promotion will run until April 10, and is only available to UNCG employees.

The Heart and Stroke Walk, with Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam as this year’s honorary chair, will also feature many activities in Kaplan Commons before the event, including a KidZone and a Pooch Parade. For the event schedule, walk route and FAQ, visit here.

Check-in begins at 8 a.m., and the walk begins at 9 a.m. in Kaplan Commons. There will be free parking at the Walker Parking Deck.

Registration is free.
