Come join us tomorrow for the Orange County Heart Walk right here on our campus.  Registration begins at 9:00 AM in the high school gym.  Warm up and stretching will take place at 9:45 AM with step off at 10:00 AM.  Hannaford Supermarket and Green Mountain Coffee will be providing breakfast.


Each year the heart walk is held in honor of a heart disease survivor who serves as an inspiration to those who participate.  This year's honoree is Jackie Lakeman, a Minisink Valley Middle School teacher who has successfully battled heart disease for more than ten years.


The heart walk will also remember Jonathan George who died in 2006 at the age of 23 from a massive heart attack triggered by an undiagnosed enlarged heart.  Jonathan's story reminds all of us of the importance of research and education, a primary focus of the funds raised by this annual event.  We hope to see you Saturday.
