DOVER-FOXCROFT - A non-competitive, three-mile walk fund-raiser is planned for Saturday, Oct. 6, to support the Heartwise cardiac rehabilitation program at Mayo Regional Hospital. Registration for the 17th annual Heartwise Walk for Life begins 9:30 a.m. Oct. 6 at the Piscataquis Regional YMCA, and the walk starts at 10 a.m. through the streets of Dover-Foxcroft. All Heartwise walkers will receive a gift. Anyone raising $25 or more in pledges also gets a T-shirt.
Last year's Walk for Life raised over $13,000, with those funds used to purchase exercise equipment and to provide scholarships for Heartwise patients. Heartwise provides a program of supervised exercise and educational group sessions for people with some type of heart or blood vessel disease.
If you are interested in joining the Walk for Life, give Heartwise a call at 564-4207.
