On Saturday Nov. 4, a small team of Spectrum Health Services staff joined in The Philadelphia Heart Walk, a team-building event focused on raising heart rates while raising funds and awareness about  America's No. 1 and No. 5 killers – heart disease and stroke.

More than 15,000 members of the community joined family, friends, and co-workers walked the 3-mile trail around Philadelphia's iconic Citizen's Bank Park in honor of a loved one who struggled with the ailments, showing their commitment to leading healthy lifestyles. 

The event closed with a kid and pet-friendly festival with loads of activities, refreshments, and live entertainment.
