Cherokee Rose Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Reliant Rehabilitation are proud to sponsor a Healthy Heart campaign to increase awareness and prevention of heart disease.

In honor of the campaign, Cherokee Rose Nursing and Rehab, located at 203 Bo Gibbs Boulevard, will host a Heart Walk beginning at 1 p.m. on on Wednesday, Feb. 27.

Participants are asked to wear red and join residents, staff, family and friends as they raise awareness for heart disease.

The first 30 participants will receive a free pedometer to help track their activity. Research has shown that getting at least 30 minutes of physical activity on five or more days of the week can keep your weight at a healthy level.
