The American Heart Association And Red Dress Dash is a healthy, fun, family event that promotes exercise as part of a heart- healthy lifestyle, and raises funds for research and programs to fight heart disease. Heart disease is our nation’s #1 killer, claiming nearly a million American lives a year.

Thus year’s Heart Walk will be the biggest ever. While you celebrate with us, you’ll also join million walkers from across the nation as we all move as one.
