Employee Resources Groups Sponsor CMU Heart Walk Team

On September 17, Carnegie Mellon University’s Employee Resources Groups (ERGs) will sponsor the first CMU Heart Walk team to benefit the American Heart Association (AHA).

The Heart Walk is AHA’s premier event for raising funds to save lives from this country's No. 1 and No. 5 killers — heart disease and stroke. The Pittsburgh Heart Walk will take place in Point State Park at 10 a.m. and will include companies, organizations and individuals from throughout the Pittsburgh area.

By participating in the Pittsburgh Heart Walk, you will reap lasting benefits for yourself and help others. The Heart Walk helps to:

  • Save the lives of kids born with congenital heart defects and adults struggling with heart disease
  • Teach thousands how to save lives through CPR training
  • Fund the next heart and stroke medical breakthrough

Visit the CMU team page to join our team or donate to the team or an individual walker.
