YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Hundreds of people took a stroll on Saturday. It was the Tri-County Heart Walk at the Watson and Tressel Training Site at YSU.

The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s premiere event that brings communities together to raise funds and celebrate progress in the fight against this country’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers, heart disease and stroke.

The 1.25 mile walk typically raises $250,000 for the local heart association.

This year, more than one million walkers will participate in nearly 350 events nationwide.
