OCEANSIDE (NEWS 8) - Eager for a good workout and a chance to chip in in the fight to stop heart disease, community teams met at the Oceanside Pier Saturday to step in the inaugural North County Healthy For Good Heart and Stroke Walk.
More than 2,500 participants walked and ran a 3.1-mile stretch around the pier with heart disease and stroke survivors donning a special survivor cap distinguishing them from the pack.
