As in years past, the heart walk will be included with It’s Time Texas community challenge which encourages citizens to exercise better, eat better, and live better. The ITT challenge is sponsored by HEB and runs thru early March. Community members register online and then document what each does to meet those goals. This is a partnership with the Cuero Regional Hospital, CISD, and city and county governments.

There will be no pre-registration this year as the walk is free for the family to enjoy! Participants will need to sign a waiver the morning of the walk. Attendees are encouraged to wear red to the event. The event will follow the best safety practices as advised by the CDC, which means attendees will need to wear masks, demonstrate social distancing and hand sanitizer will be available to all attendees. Also, the event will not include an inflatable obstacle course this year in accordance with those guidelines.
