The 2014 Greater Knoxville Heart Walk drew a large crowd to World’s Fair Park on Sunday. I was the event emcee but I was also a participant. The cause is meaningful to me because, like many others, I’ve lost relatives to heart disease and stroke. The ailments are the number one and number four killers in the United States.
The Heart Walk started in World’s Fair Park and headed south through the performance lawn. My wife and I paused along the Second Creek Greenway to take a selfie. The 3.1 mile route continued to Neyland Drive, where it made a large loop before returning to the Greenway and World’s Fair Park.
