Heart Health Week 2024


Come Out and Join Us for a Walk!

February is Heart Health Month. Taking care of your heart at any age is important to help prevent heart disease and lower your risk for a heart attack or stroke. To celebrate, we are encouraging everyone to walk Georgia Tech’s campus. A simple way to support one's heart health is by being active for at least 30 minutes. 

Our staff and campus partners will be at a different location around campus each day Feb. 5-9 from 12-2 p.m. to talk about heart health and encourage physical activity. Use the walking route for the day to receive a shirt. Follow us @CRCatGeorgiaTech for more information.

The first 100 to visit us each day will get a T-shirt, and each day you participate, you will be entered into a drawing for prizes from Campus Rec and our campus partners. Special thanks to our fellow Student Engagement and Well-Being departments and other Campus Partners for their support: the Women’s Resource Center, the Wellness Empowerment Center, the Center for Mental Health Care and Resources, Human Resources, the Library, STAMPS, and Auxiliary Services.
