Heart-friendly events in September



In this one of the last posts of August, I am summarizing heart-related events worldwide scheduled for September.

Walks and runs

Now, these are events everybody can join in. You can walk, run, or hike – it’s your choice. September is a good month for these outdoor activities. It’s not so hot anymore but still warm enough to have a good time. Plus, there are fundraising events out there where you can help out.

The American Heart Association is sponsoring several Start! Walking movement events across America and several walks and runs are scheduled for September. The complete schedule can be found here.

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is organizing walks and hikes as part of their Hearts First Walks and Hearts First Hikes. There are lots scheduled for September and you’ll find the schedule here. But there are lots more! BHF is organizing or sponsoring other fun heart-friendly activities from cycling, to swimming, to skipping rope. You can download the BHF events diary here.

The American Stroke Foundation is organizing the 6th Annual Walk on the Wildside – The Stroke Walk at  Shawnee Mission Park, Shawnee, KS, USA
