A 1–3 mile, non-competitive walk around OCC with all intersections safely guarded for enjoyable family fun (rain or shine). A run component is available as well, to benefit the American Heart Association's fight against Heart Disease and Stroke, America's #1 & #5 killers.

Upstate has been a proud sponsor of the Heart Walk for many years, and Team Upstate has been one of the top overall fundraising teams since 2007. Upstate's cardiovascular research program has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from Heart Walk proceeds over the years.
