Entertainment will be provided throughout the event and door prizes will be awarded.

“We have a variety of door prizes that anyone would be happy to take home,” Phillips said.

The Pike County Heart Walk will conclude several months of fundraising.

“Of the money raised, only 8.1 percent is spent on administrative expenses,” Phillips said.

“The Heart Board extends an invitation to everyone to come join us for the Pike County Heart Walk on Thursday, February 24 and be a part of reducing the number of deaths in the United States from heart disease and stroke.”
