The American Heart Association is offering a new way to get involved in America's Greatest Heart Run and Walk.

Two Heart Walk Team Rallies will give participants the chance to learn how to start a team, register online and find out everything they need to know for the day of the event.

The rallies will be held on January 18th at Cavallo's in New Hartford and January 25th at Francesca's In Ilion.  Both will take place from 5:30 to 8:30.

Anyone interested in attending should RSVP by e-mailing heartofutica@heart.org or by calling (315) 580-3964.

America's Greatest Heart Run and Walk Weekend 2017 will take place on March 3rd and 4th.
