WILMIGNTON, NC (WWAY) — Thousands laced up their walking shoes for the American Heart Association’s Cape Fear Heart Walk at UNCW.

Teams of families, friends, and even co-workers came out to walk in support of those battling heart disease. Organizers say this disease effects people of all ages and events like this are important to spread awareness. Proceeds from Saturday’s event go towards research, education, and advocacy right here in North Carolina.
