President Kelly Invites You to Attend the Heart Walk Kick-off

A letter from President John Kelly:

Immediately after I arrived at FAU I saw how truly caring our university community is. Students, faculty and staff reach out in a multitude of ways with willing hearts and helping hands to make life better for people in our service area and beyond. 

One of the best traditions at FAU is our participation in the annual Palm Beach Heart Walk. Teams are forming right now for this year’s Heart Walk, which will take place on Saturday, Sept. 27, in downtown West Palm Beach. Now’s the time to talk to your friends and co-workers about forming your own team under the overall umbrella of Team FAU. To get started, click here.  If you have questions or need help, please contact Lynn Laurenti at laurenti@fau.edu or Jennifer Mora Rhine at Jennifer.Mora@heart.org. The team coordinator on the Jupiter campus is Terry Gearing, gearing@fau.edu.

Supporting the Heart Walk is a lot of fun, and it gives us a great way to join the fight against heart disease and stroke – the two biggest killers in our society. It also gives us the opportunity to help fund the critically important heart-related research that is taking place here at FAU and at other universities around the country. 

So let’s get out there and make some waves at the Heart Walk! Go Team FAU! 

Sincerely,

John Kelly

President
