Hundreds of Quad Citians laced up their sneakers for the annual ‘Heart Walk'.
It's one of the biggest fundraisers for the American heart association to raise money for research and treatment for cardiovascular disease.
The downtown district of Rock Island was buzzing with people ready to walk the arsenal and centennial bridges.
The cause helps educate quad Citians about the risks of heart disease and stroke.
"We have a lot of people out here who are with survivors whether that's a child who had a congenital heart defect that was corrected or adults with cardiovascular disease," says Rick Seidler, President/CEO of Trinity.
CBS 4 is a proud sponsor of the heart walk. Our very own Meredith Dennis and Anthony Peoples emceed the event.
