WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWTI) — Help kick off this year’s North Country Heart Challenge.

The American Heart Association’s North Country Challenge is just days away from starting. This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the kick-off event will be virtual, but participants will have access to all new information.

All Heart team coaches, walkers, volunteers, sponsors and heart disease and stroke survivors are invited to attend.

The event will stream live via Zoom and will be held at two separate times throughout the day; allowing participants to choose what times work best for them.
