Faculty and Staff Support Cape Fear Heart Walk

Wednesday, November 02, 2016

A Watson College team, comprised of 50 faculty, staff, family members and friends, participated in the 8th Annual Cape Fear Heart Walk. The event, held on the UNCW campus on Oct. 15, brought together more than 2,000 community members to raise awareness and donations for the prevention and treatment of heart disease and stroke. The Watson team, led by co-captains Robert Smith and Cindy Wiseman, raised $1,665 for the American Heart Association.

The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s largest single fundraising event across the nation. Funds raised support research, public health programs and community education to fight heart disease and stroke, America’s number one and number five killers, respectively.
