A group of walkers set off from the Lions Hall in Willow Point during Sunday's Walk for Hearts.

Walk for Hearts

The Campbell River branch of the First Open Heart Society raised more than $7,200 at its 30th annual Walk for Hearts last Sunday. The event attracted 102 participants and included a walk along the Seawalk, beginning at the Willow Point Hall, as well as prizes, refreshments, and a rousing warmup.

Funds raised will go towards cardiac equipment for the Campbell River Hospital.

The First Open Heart Society is a support group for heart patients and their families, made up of all unpaid volunteers and all the funds are raised locally and stay local.
