Heart Walk is Saturday; some roads closed around campus that morning

The 2016 Greater Nashville Heart Walk will take place on Vanderbilt’s campus on Saturday, Oct. 15.

The Heart Walk is the annual fundraiser for the American Heart Association. Proceeds support public education about heart disease and fund important cardiovascular research.

The walk is three miles around the Vanderbilt campus (with a one-mile survivor route option). Activities begin at 8 a.m. with a breakfast and celebration for transplant recipients, family and friends. The walk begins at 10 a.m. Parking is available in Lot 75 (corner of Natchez Trace and Children’s Way) or the West Garage (corner of 25th Avenue and Children’s Way).
