The American Heart Association's 2019 Metro Detroit Heart Walk is just 17 days away! The university is playing its part in making Metro Detroit healthier so that heart disease is no longer the number one reason we lose our loved ones - however it takes a village to make an impact! 

‚ÄčThe entire Wayne State University community is invited to join us on May 18, 2019 as we heart walk/run to stamp out heart disease! It's not too late to register your team or join a team! The first 500 WSU registrants will receive a newly-designed WSU Heart Walk Warriors t-shirt! 

To register a new WSU Heart Walk team, visit the Heart Walk website here and click on the red tab, "Create a team." To join an existing team, visit the same website, and explore nearly 50 WSU teams that you can join! 

If you can't join us on May 18th but want to donate, donations can be made to the team of your choice! 

In addition to Heart Walk participants and donors, we are searching for volunteers to help us on May 17 and 18!  The jobs are fun and easy! On Friday, May 17, volunteers will be helping us get our festival grounds ready, set up signage, organize runner shirts and more. On Saturday, we are in need of volunteers to guide our guests at parking structures, cheer them on at the start and finish lines, help at activity tables for kids, help at our information tent and more!

Whether you can only spare an hour or two, or spend an entire morning or afternoon with us, your help is greatly needed and appreciated! Be a part of our important Heart Walk Hero team! To volunteer, sign up here:   In the Employer section of the questionnaire, please state “Wayne State University!”

If you can only work part of a shift – no worries!  Volunteers will be provided a meal, along with a Heart Walk t-shirt for helping us out! Volunteer questions can be directed to Julie O’Connor at

We hope you can join us for a fun event that supports a very important cause!
