The American Heart Association will host the 30th Annual Heart Walk 5K on Saturday, September 23rd, 2017 at the GWCC Yellow Parking Lot. The event will begin at 8:30am and will end around 10:30am.

This has been an annual event for the American Heart Association for the past 30 years, in Centennial Olympic Park for about the last 5 years, and now in the GWCC Yellow Lot as a results of the renovations in Centennial Olympic Park currently underway. The event is a fund raiser for heart healthy programs in the Atlanta area and a crowd of 12,000 to 15,000 walkers and runners are anticipated.

There will be rolling street closures affecting Centennial Olympic Park, Nelson Street and Northside Drive. Off-duty Atlanta Police officers will direct traffic at all intersections along the route.
