More than $400K raised in Heart Walk

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Exercise is important if you want a healthy heart.

So this three-mile walk near the Mississippi State Capitol is a fitting way to raise funds for the fight against heart disease and stroke. 

Hundreds of people gathered for the event, including teams from businesses like C-Spire and Baptist Hospital.

It's a great way to get some sunshine and lend support to those who have lost a loved one to heart disease.

Hugh Meena says: "We have raised over $400,000 in the Jackson area community. The businesses that participated did an outstanding job with tremendous support that we had here in this area," said Hugh Meena CEO of CSpire.

The C-Spire team raised $100,000 on its own.
