Want To Walk With Weiss? It Happens Friday Morning

Bringing the importance of heart health closer to home, Weiss Memorial Hospital is engaging its Uptown neighbors in the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk with a walk of its own Friday, September 25th, starting at 11am. Participants will meet in front of the hospital’s Medical Office Building, located at 4700 N. Marine Dr.

Two options are being offered to walkers.
  • a one-mile trek around the park across the street from the hospital, for people who are limited in time or walking abilities
  • a three-mile walk along the shores of Lake Michigan
The purpose of the walk is to raise funds and awareness. Proceeds will go toward heart disease research and education.

Weiss’ move to host a satellite walk in Uptown this year – instead of going to Soldier Field for the main Chicago walk – gives local residents and hospital employees a more convenient way to get involved and get moving.
