The 2014 Lubbock Heart Walk, benefiting the American Heart Association, took place on September 20th at the Frazier Alumni Pavilion.

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center placed in the top 5 companies represented at the Heart Walk according to their website raising over $3,500  for the cause. TTUHSC's goal of raising $5,000 is still attainable. Donations are still being accepted and can be made here.

TTUHSC had two co-chairs for the event, Joanna Harkey, senior associate general counsel, and Thomas Tenner Jr., Ph.D., associate dean for Faculty Affairs and Development. This year's Heart Walk included a family-friendly three-mile walk, a health expo, entertainment and more.
