Bradley County EMS has partnered with Sky Ridge Medical Center to be a part of bringing the American Heart Association Heart Walk back to Cleveland. This community event will take place on Saturday on Raider Drive at the Cleveland Greenway. Registration will begin at 9 a.m.
There will be walking teams from several area businesses participating to raise money for the AHA. There will be activities for the entire family on hand including a kid’s zone, the Cashdale horses from Check into Cash and more.
Bradley County EMS will have some of the latest lifesaving equipment on hand for the public to view. Other emergency agencies will have apparatus and equipment there as well. There will be multiple local business sponsors present. Before the walk begins there will be a recognition ceremony for survivors and lifestyle changes.
“The message that we are trying to get out to the public is if you experience chest pain or any medical emergency, call 911. Stay alive, don't drive,” said Stan Clark, EMS spokesperson.
