The American Heart Association will hold the American Heart Walk, presented by Beneficial Life, Saturday, Sept. 12, 8:30 a.m., at Liberty Park. This is a family event that focuses attention on exercise as an important part of a heart-healthy lifestyle. And it raises money to fight the nation's leading killer, heart disease.

Walkers who've had a heart attack, stroke, congenital heart disease or heart surgery are honored with a special red cap to wear at the walk. For information about the walk, call the American Heart Association, 484-3838.
