America's Greatest Heart Run & Walk drew nearly 6,000 walkers and runners out into the frigid temperatures on Saturday. Participants helped raise a total of $976,143 to help fight heart disease and stroke.

Our 46th annual WIBX Slocum-Dickson Heart Radiothon helped contribute over $50,000 to the grand total. The 3rd annual Walmart Treadmill Challenge was another huge success bringing in over $15,000 on Friday. Below is the list of participants and their fund-raising totals. Each of our challengers did an amazing job, and Sheriff Rob Maciol and Jennifer Venezio of Body by Design were the top earners.
