American Heart Association presents Annual Healing Heart 5K

March 10, 2013 by  

In a couple of months’ time, the 4th Annual Healing Heart will be held at the Martha Clara Vineyards in Riverhead, just a few miles from Bellerose.

The event is presented by the American Heart Association and attracts hundreds of people of all ages. Proceeds from the event will benefit the association.

One of the main goals of the event is to fight the national increase of childhood obesity and to show people how to live in a more heart-healthy manner. Participants are encouraged to walk or run through the beautiful vineyard property.

The event is a perfect family activity as everyone learns the importance of good health and the steps to achieve and maintain it for longer, healthier lives. The American Heart Association has a mission for freeing lives of cardiovascular diseases and strokes through healthy choices.

Many sponsorship packages are available with several companies already registered. Sponsor options begin at $100 for route signage all the way to the ultimate package of $5000 for the Healing Heart Title Sponsor.

Poster printing is a frequent service provided by print companies for marathons and 5k events. Posters are generally printed in full color on one side and placed throughout designated areas to attract attention and ideally enhance attendance.

Participant registration is open via the online website for the American Heart Association. The fee for adults is $30 and children under 16 are $15. For companies or individuals interested in the sponsorship opportunities, the contact number is 516-450-9121. There is also a great deal of information about all facets of the event, which is scheduled for May 19, on the American Heart Association website.
