The event is expected to raise heart rates and funds for the American Heart Association, the world's leading voluntary organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
"I feel truly honored to be a part of the Greater Nashville Heart Walk that helps the country's oldest and largest voluntary organization. It's amazing to see how many people come together for such a good cause to help fight heart disease and continuing education on healthy lifestyles. The heart is so important and this walk means so much to keep us pumping, " states Plushnick.
