Heart and Stroke Walk
Join thousands of walkers from Oregon and beyond as they step out to have fun, get inspired, & support a meaningful cause!
The festivities begin at 8:30am with the Heart Walk starting promptly at 9:30am.
Before the walk, enjoy family-friendly activities like contests and more! Learn about your heart health with free Hands Only CPR demonstrations and blood pressure screenings.
Parking will be available in the lot between Main and Madison on Water Avenue. Parking is also available on surrounding side streets.
How long is the walk?
It is a 5k, 3.1 mile event (includes a 1 mile Survivor turnaround).
Can I run the route?
Yes, participants are more than welcome to run the route. We ask that you move to the front of the starting line so that you are ahead of the walkers.
The money raised through the Heart Walk funds research, and initiatives that promote the prevention, treatment and better patient care in the areas of cardiovascular disease, the leading killer in the United States. The American Heart Association is the nation's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of heart disease and stroke.
