CHHS Has Heart

As a child did you ever dream of being a super hero? Perhaps you dressed up as Superman for Halloween, or you envisioned what it would be like to fly in an invisible plane like Wonder Woman. Well, it is never too late to live your dream!

The theme for this year's Washtenaw County Heart Walk & 5K Run is "Be Heroic." Super heroes aren't just those who have super human powers or who have fancy gadgets the fend off evil doers, they are ordinary people like you and I who do extraordinary things.

Be a super hero and join the College of Health & Human Services & the American Heart Association in building healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Once again Associate Dean Dr. Chris Karshin will serve as the Captain of the College's Heart Walk Team...CHHS Has Heart.
