Chattahoochee Tech Volunteers Participate in 2019 Heart Walk

The Marietta Square was filled with people for the 2019 Northwest Georgia Heart Walk on Saturday morning, Nov. 2, including an army of participants representing Chattahoochee Technical College.

“We are so appreciative of all the staff, students, family and friends who have made this event a tradition over the past six years,” said Chattahoochee Tech Special Projects Consultant Brenda White, who led the effort to recruit participants from the college. These Chattahoochee Tech participants raised nearly $2,000 for the American Heart Association. Money raised by the Heart Walk goes to research and efforts to transform communities into healthier places, according to the American Heart Association.

Chattahoochee Tech students in anatomy classes taught by Bhavya Mathur also were at the event with a table display to share what they’ve been learning in class about healthy hearts and lungs. “It was a wonderful event!” said Mathur. “It was heartwarming to see our students’ enthusiasm for sharing their knowledge with the community.”
