WANTAGH, N.Y. (Sept. 20, 2016) – Over the weekend, the LIU Post women’s lacrosse team took part in the 2016 Long Island Heart Walk, hosted by the American Heart Association at Jones Beach State Park.
The Heart Walk is the AHA’s premiere event for raising funds to save lives from heart disease and stroke. It is designed to promote physical activity and heart-healthy living.
“It was a great event. To be able to help out this great cause and obtain donations for the American Heart Association is very important to us,” said Head Coach Meghan McNamara. “We have been impacted several times as an LIU Post family, and wanted to give back and support our teammates, alumni, friends and family.”
The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. They provide public health education and science-based treatment guidelines to healthcare professionals to help them provide quality care to their patients.
