Heart Walk team

The Heart to Heart Cardiac Support Group at Linthicum Heights United Methodist Church is forming a team to walk in the American Heart Association's Heart Walk on Saturday in Annapolis.

It will be the first time the group has participated in the event.

Registration is at 8 a.m., and the walk begins at 9 a.m. Walk at your own pace along two routes -- one 3 miles, the other 6. Both start at St. John's College and go through the Naval Academy to City Dock and around the Historic District.

Walkers are expected to raise pledge money toward the team's goal of $1,000.

Sponsors can help by writing checks to the American Heart Association and forwarding them to team leader Nan Duerling at 381 Hemlock Trail, Crownsville 21032-1722. Contributions must be made by Friday.

The support group's next meeting is at 7 p.m. Sept. 22 in Room 116 at Linthicum Heights United Methodist Church, 200 School Lane.

Duerling, a Sunday school curriculum writer and editor for the United Methodist Publishing House and the United Church Press, will lead a study of selected biblical characters who experienced illness, sought help and eventually found healing, sometimes as the result of miraculous events.

Study materials will be provided, but you may bring your own Bible.
