Bayhealth, which operates Milford Memorial Hospital, was recently recognized as the top fundraiser for American Heart Association’s annual Heart Walk in southern Delaware.
Prior to last year’s event, the health care organization contributed close to $30,000 that will be used to support research and education in the fight against heart disease and stroke.
It marks the 14th year that Bayhealth has received the award.
In addition to raising funds, the 350 Health Walk events held throughout the country each year are designed to promote physical activity and heart-healthy living.
This year, Heart Walk events will be held in Dover on July 1 and in Wilmington on Sept. 8.
