Phillips said the campaign to raise funds for the American Heart Association will continue into February 2024 with the annual Survivors Breakfast and the Pike County Heart Walk.

“The money raised for the American Heart Association goes to research, education and grants,” Phillips said. “Less than 9 percent of the money raised is spent on administrative costs.”
