Brought to you by the American Heart Association, the annual Triangle Heart Walk took place earlier today at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC. This year DGIM put together a walking team with the team name "GIMme the Beat" (get it?!). This annual celebration promotes physical activity and heart healthy living in a fun, family and dog-friendly environment. Our team walked the full 3 miles and also raised $450 for the fight against heart disease and stroke.
Walkers this year included:
DGIM Faculty: Nia Mitchell, MD
DGIM Staff Members: Mark Bettger, Sarah Gonzalez, Clare Il'Giovine, Shauna Malone, Julie Miller, and Nikita Shah.
The GIMme the Beat team is planning on walking again next year and is hoping to have an even better turn out! Contact GIM Communication Strategist, Clare Il'Giovine, if interested in walking next time!
