The Birmingham Independent Insurance Agents association is putting together a team for the Birmingham Heart Walk, and we want YOU!
The 5K walk will be held at Railroad Park on Saturday, June 9th at 7:30 am. The event is free, but BIIA is looking to donate at least $5,000 from its members. Funds raised will go to American Heart Association for heart disease and stroke research.
“We try to be active in our community. Each year we host the annual Gala benefitting a local non-profit and The Heart Association is one of the beneficiaries for the 2019 BIIA Gala. Their annual heart walk is the perfect way for BIIA members to come together, connect, and support them,” said Vickie Fuller, President Elect.
Heart disease kills thousands of Alabamians each year. The American Heart Association has given more than $10.6 million in research funds in Alabama. The Birmingham Heart Walk is another opportunity to help raise funds for the organization.
“Our members are what makes the association great, and this is a great opportunity for BIIA members to come together for a great cause,” said Fuller.
