February is the month in which this community prepares for one of it's biggest events, America's Greatest Heart Run & Walk. This year the events will be held on Friday February 28th and Saturday March 1st. That weekend the local chapter of The American Heart Association has a lot of excitement in store. One event is the Heart Expo which takes place in the gym of Utica College. During the Expo you can get health & wellness information, free health screenings and much more. Of course you have America's Greatest Heart Run & Walk. That will take place Saturday morning.

Another event that takes place that weekend is the WIBX Slocum Dickson Heart Radiothon. During the Radiothon various Townsquare Media deejays and personalities interview healthcare professionals, local politicians, and local celebrities. The goal of the Radiothon is to encourage people to call up and pledge donations to The American Heart Association.

Here is where you come in! The Heart Association is seeking volunteers to help answer phones and take pledges. You can volunteer for any of the time slots, but the biggest need is Saturday, March 1st, 2014 from 9am - 1pm. The amount of time they ask that you volunteer is 4 hours, however whatever you can do would be greatly appreciated. If you can't do anything that weekend, The Heart Association is ALWAYS in need of volunteers throughout the year for various tasks. If you're falling behind on your Kharma points this year, consider volunteering for your local American Heart Association.
