The American Heart Association kicked off activities for its 2012 Miami-Dade Heart Walk with a pep rally for team captains on Aug. 9 at the Coral Gables Country Club.

Guests not only enjoyed a healthy breakfast, networking and fundraising presentations, but also were entertained with a performance by the FIU Dazzlers.

Among the many enjoying the morning event were Ernie Diaz, 2012 Miami- Dade Heart Walk chair and South Florida market president for TD Bank; Terri Giles, Miami-Dade Heart Walk team captain champion, and Jordana DePaula, event emcee, FOX Sports/Sun Sports Florida.

For this year’s Walk, the American Heart Association returns to the FIU Modesto A. Madique Campus. Look for the fun to begin on Saturday, Oct. 6, at 8 a.m., with lots of booths and, of course, those great sandwiches from Subway for everyone. This event is a great way to support AHA, exercise and have a great morning out with friends and family.
