The American Heart Association’s Central Iowa Heart Walk returns to Des Moines on Saturday, April 30, at 9 a.m., after being canceled the past two years due to the pandemic. Participants are invited to the Iowa State Capitol for a 3-mile walk to celebrate heart and stroke survivors, raise lifesaving funds and encourage physical activity. “The past two-plus years have shown us that no matter where we are, we can come together for a common cause,” said Jonathan Koester, president of Koester Development Group and chair of the Central Iowa Heart Walk. The walk is the signature event of the American Heart Association’s Heart Challenge program, designed to help companies boost employees’ overall health and well-being. The funds raised from the Central Iowa Heart Walk go toward research, advocacy, CPR training and to promote better health in support of the Association’s 2024 Health Equity Impact Goal, reducing barriers to health care access and quality.
