American Heart Association Walk with the President

Open Timeslots


Age LimitAll Ages

On Wednesday, April 6, GSW will join the American Heart Association and our fellow Georgia Universities in celebrating National Walking Day.  It’s a day to challenge ourselves and our nation to get heart healthy and fit.  I am asking YOU to join me in a 30-minute, GSW community-wide “Walk with the President” on April 6 at 4:30 pm.  We will assemble in front of the Wheatley Administration Building and conduct a brief walk along Perimeter Road.  All registrants will be entered into a drawing for door prizes immediately following the event.  Water, first aid and healthy snacks will be provided along the course.  Step by step, day after day, you walk to make progress. Every day we take thousands of steps to get where we need to go.  Now we can take steps toward a healthier lifestyle and support the American Heart Association.

This event is part of a larger challenge among participating institutions, including Atlanta Metropolitan State College, Georgia Gwinnett College, Georgia Highlands College, Savannah State University and your very own Georgia Southwestern State University.  Information will be forthcoming on additional April and May events to support the greater challenge.  This is one more opportunity to demonstrate our love and dedication to GSW!

I look forward to seeing our entire GSW community – faculty, staff and students – walking together in support of healthy lifestyles and an engaged campus community.  Mark your calendars now…April 6 at 4:30 pm!
