2012 Centre County Heart Walk teams are forming

For Elizabeth Burger, finance, Mount Nittany Health, walking is a family affair. She has been part of the Centre County Heart Walk for four years, and her daughter Emma has gone right along with her each year of her life!

This year Elizabeth is in charge of recruiting a team. Mount Nittany Health currently has seven teams.

April Bassett, finance, who has been with Mount Nittany Health for just about one year, says, "It's great that Mount Nittany Health gets involved with the Centre County walk because it's a great way to connect with friends and family."

Like Elizabeth, April will be walking with her family - husband Matt and sons Landon and Caleb.

The three-mile walk will take place on Sept. 9 at 1:00 pm rain or shine at Millbrook Marsh Nature Center.

The goal for the Centre County Heart Walk is $55,000.

Chair Tracey Zoda, wife of Albert Zoda, MD, FACC, cardiologist, Mount Nittany Physician Group, says, "It's going to be really fun. There will be activities throughout the day including blood pressure screenings, a kid zone, and heart healthy snacks."

People can sign up for a team through by visiting or contact centre.ahw@heart .org or 814.954.7035.
