Area residents are encouraged to lace up their walking shoes and get ready to walk for a good cause when LSC-Kingwood hosts the American Heart Association Heart Walk and Heart Fest on Saturday, Nov. 14, 8 a.m. to noon at the Student and Fine Arts Building Outdoor Commons area on campus.
Help raise money and awareness about heart disease and stroke by participating in the 5K Heart Walk. On-site registration for those who do not register in advance will begin at 8 a.m. and the walk will begin at 9 a.m. The 5K or 3.1-mile course begins on the campus, travels down Kingwood Place to Northpark Drive and then returns to campus. Most walkers should complete the course in 30 to 45 minutes. Participants are encouraged to bring their cheering squad to give them support as they cross the finish line.
