Folks come together for 2020 Roanoke Heart Walk
ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - This year’s Roanoke Heart Walk was unlike any other. Truist Bank hosted the Heart Walk to raise awareness for heart disease, especially during the coronavirus pandemic.
Saturday, teams gathered for photos under a heart balloon arch. They then split up to walk separately, to follow social distancing guidelines.
“We wanted to give the opportunity for everybody to come together as their separate teams and have the camaraderie of an event basically," Jim Lull, the Heart Walk chair, said.
All the money raised from this event goes to the American Heart Association.
