The American Heart Association held its 2013 Jones County Heart Walk at Jones County Junior College on Saturday morning.
The rain did not stop dozens of students, residents and businesses from taking part in the event.
Thanks to contributions, American Heart Association can continue saving lives by funding critical research, education and important community programs.
Through the support of corporate sponsors and individual donors, the event alone raised more than $42,000.
WDAM was one of the Heart Walk Media Sponsors. The event was emceed by Vanessa Pacheco.
