Utica’s Heart Run And Walk 2014 [Gallery]
Did we see you at America’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk? Thousands braved cold temperatures in the memory of a loved one or to bring attention to heart disease and raise money for The Heart Association. Jeremiah even bought new shoes to tackle heartbreak hill. Check out our photos from the day.
While it was the coldest Heart/Run Walk I remember, it didn’t seem to dampen the enthusiasm as many wore costumes, carried flags and held up pictures of loved one lost to heart disease. Even people who line the street to offer encouragement and support to the runners and walkers were in full force despite the frigid temperatures.
This years event, coupled with our sister station, WIBX’s Radiothon, raise over a million dollars to help fight heart disease and stroke. A Big Frog salute to all those who ran, walked and donated for the longest running event in the U.S.
As always many thanks to the Hahn family on Elm Street who have hosted Big Frog and Jeremiah for the last several years. They always offer us coffee, bagels and even more appreciated this year, a place to warm up. Check out photos from this year’s event, (complete with a few finger shots) in the gallery below.
