In support of Heart Awareness Month, two sororities will host the “Pink Goes Red” - Red Pumps IV Your Heart Walk beginning with registration at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 19, at The Pines mall.
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., Delta Omega Omega and Alpha Rho chapters, and the Pine Bluff Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. are sponsoring the heart walk.
The event will begin at 3 p.m. The first lap of the walk will be done wearing red pumps and the second lap in tennis shoes.
“The purpose of the walk is to bring awareness to American Heart Month, to remind the local community to focus on their hearts and to encourage them to get their families and friends involved,” a spokeswoman said in a news release.
Holly Heer from the American Heart Association will be on site and materials will be available to help increase awareness of the warning signs of heart attack, stroke and cardiac arrest, the spokeswoman said.
“The public is invited to participate in the walk and receive valuable information that could save a life,” she said.
