Boston Heart Walk Description

Boston Heart Walk  - Running in Boston.

The Boston Heart Walk is an annual charity event held in September in Boston as a way to increase awareness of and raise money for heart disease. The American Heart Association (AMA) sponsored walk begins and ends at the DCR Hatch Memorial Shell with both 3-mile and 6-mile courses mapped out for the participants. The DCR Hatch Memorial Shell is an outdoor amphitheater located on the banks of the Charles River just outside downtown Boston.

The Boston Heart Walk draws over 10,000 participants each year, managing to raise over $1.5 million annually. Participants can enter the walk individually or as part of a team. There is also live music among other events to entertain the crowd when not on the walking course. Past Boston Heart Walk participants include Red Sox great Bill Lee and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.

While there are no fees to enter the non-competitive Boston Heart Walk, those who raise over $100 by the day of the walk are eligible for a Heart Walk T-shirt.
