The Heart of the Community Heart Walk went on as planned Saturday, Feb 8th despite the surprise of snow in Downtown Rome. Presenting sponsor Redmond Regional Medical Center was on hand to support the event and give away toboggans, scarves, and gloves to help keep walkers warm. The Heart of the Community Foundation also presented over $65,000 in grants to local non-profit organizations in Rome/Floyd County. Those grants were made possible, in part, to the presenting sponsorship of Redmond. That evening at the Heart of the Community Awards of Honor presented by Redmond, ten unsung heroes of the community were honored for their service and volunteerism.
