A Penn State Mont Alto team raised more than $1,000 to save lives
A team of 10 faculty, staff, students and friends of the campus joined together to raise $1,000 to save lives in the 16th annual Mason-Dixon Start! Heart Walk in Greencastle on September 27. The Penn State Mont Alto contingent was one of 60 teams making up approximately 750 walkers at the event. The participants walked either 1.2 or 4 miles.
According to the American Heart Association website (www.heart.org), more than 1 million walkers will participate in more than 450 events this year, raising funds to save lives from this nation's No. 1 and No. 3 killers -- heart disease and stroke.
