‘Move More April’
The American Heart Association has named the month of April “Move More April,” a movement with a simple mission: to get people to sit less.
This morning, Mississippi Power CEO and 2019 Gulf Coast Heart Walk Chair Anthony Wilson invited business leaders across Harrison and Hancock County to gather their employees for a one-mile walk in downtown Gulfport.
Merit Health Biloxi CEO Robert Calhoun had a team out taking part in the walk and says this is just one of the few events they take part in for the Gulf Coast Heart Walk. “So, we are raising teams to coordinate with us for the heart walk that occurs later in the year. We are looking to raise funds for the overall goal for the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We have a team here with the heart walk and we are here to celebrate with Anthony Wilson with Mississippi Power just to do our part with raising awareness for the heart walk.”
The heart walk will take place at 8 a.m. at Jones Park on September 28th.
