Registration is open for the American Heart Association’s Greater Omaha Heart & Stroke Walk. 

The event is Saturday, May 11, at Miller's Landing at 151 Freedom Park Road in Omaha. Check-in is at 8 a.m., and the event begins at 9:30 a.m. One- or 3-mile routes are available.

Nebraska Methodist College (NMC) and Methodist Health System employees can register for the walk and join one of the Methodist teams.


Why get involved? 

The Greater Omaha Heart & Stroke Walk is much more than a walk. Participating in the event helps boost your heart health and improve your mental health while helping millions of others.

Be a supporter of critical research. Be a community energizer. Be a champion. Be a lifesaver. You are all of these things because you are a walker.

To register:

  • Go to the sign-up page.
  • Click “Join a Team.”
  • Choose any of the Methodist teams available across the health system.
