SUNY Broome gets ready for the next American Heart Association’s 31st Anniversary of the Southern Tier Heart Walk
Was held on Sunday, April 5, 2020!

For 31 Years the Southern Tier Heart Walk is a fundraiser for the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.  Much of the work was spearheaded by Gina Chapman who, after a tough fight with cancer, was take by our Lord where there is no more pain or sorrow.  She was a wonderful gifted person who gave it her ALL.  We will miss you Gina!

Gina Chapman – 1972 – 2019

We want people to experience more of life’s precious moments. Life is why, each year, more than one million walkers participate in Heart Walk events around the country – each raising funds to save lives from this country’s #1 and #5 killers: heart disease & stroke.

The event begins at SUNY Broome’s Ice Center at 10 a.m. with heart-healthy exhibits, food, music and more. The KIDS FUN RUN starts at 11 a.m. The opening ceremony kicks off at 11:30 a.m., followed by the walk. Refreshments will be available at 12:30 p.m., followed by a closing ceremony at 1 p.m.

Everyone is welcome to participate: corporations, businesses, schools, clubs, teams, individuals, groups, families and friends! Look to see what teams have started for SUNY Broome, OR Start YOUR Own fundraising team today.
