Wilson Brown, the lone recipient of the Naval Medal of Honor, is laid to rest in the cemetery. This weekend, a multitude of walkers flooded the streets in downtown Jackson to raise funds for research on heart disease. The event unites the Jackson walkers with millions of individuals across the country.
The Metro Heart Walk aims to provide support for those who have survived heart attacks or strokes. The organizers emphasize the importance of educating people about heart disease, particularly women and pregnant women, as it is the leading cause of death in America and the state.
They hope that through these efforts, they can improve the overall health of their state, with all the funds raised staying within the local community..
