ALBANY, GA (WALB) - South Georgians have the opportunity to help fight the number one killer in America, and you can do it one step at a time.

The American Heart Association is looking for volunteers to help them raise money during this year's Heart Walk.

The walk is the American Heart Association's signature fundraiser and is the group's only fundraiser in Albany this year. The money raised will go toward research and education.

"Heart disease is the number one killer in this country for both women and men. And strokes are the number three killer. So statistically a lot of viewers have been or will be effected. So look into your hearts and find the passion to raise some money for these research projects," said Regional Director, Lori Cauley.

The Heart Walk will be held on October 23rd at the Veranda walking track on Meredyth Drive. If you'd like to form a team or donate call 229-630-8104.
