Event to benefit Buffalo Niagara American Heart Association
For the second year, Macerich's Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls, USA is hosting the One Heart, One Mile Winter Wellness Walk and Health Fair to benefit the Buffalo Niagara American Heart Association (WNY AHA). The free event will take place on Saturday, March 3.
Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. and festivities kick off at 10 a.m. At 10 a.m., walkers will follow a one-mile path around the mall. Immediately following the walk, a variety of health related vendors will be available to educate guests on a wide selection of health related topics.
"This time of year can be difficult for many to get motivated to move - especially with the frigid outside temperatures. By hosting the one-mile walk in the Fashion Outlets, we're giving people a fun, indoor option to get moving and do something good for their heart health," said John Doran, senior manager of Macerich's Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls. "We brought the Niagara County Heart Walk back last year after a 12-year hiatus. It was a great success for our first year and we look forward to continuing the tradition with the WNY AHA and educating our community in an enjoyable way."
Niagara Falls businesses including United Health Care, Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, Mount St. Mary's Hospital and Niagara Yogo Co-op have signed on as sponsors of the event.
"The American Heart Association recommends walking 30 minutes per day to prevent heart disease and stroke," Marc Natale, executive director of Buffalo Niagara American Heart Association said. "Events like One Heart One Mile help fund the Buffalo Niagara American Heart Association's critical research and awareness programs in our community that help save lives from cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
