Some of the estimated 1,500 Central Maine residents walk along the Riverwalk in Auburn Sunday morning toward the start/finish line at the Hilton Garden Inn during the 15th annual Central Maine Heart Walk . Families, friends, and co-workers turned out to help raise funds to support the American Heart Association’s (AHA) life-saving research and education. AHA Communications Director, Brenda Vitali, was confident that they would raise as much as last year, $130,000. Participants were treated to music, food, childrens activities and several inspiritational speeches prior to the start. For many more photos, visit: sunjournal.com/heartwalk2013.

Danielle Martin, left, reacts while telling bystanders about how she lost her brakes coming down Chestnut Street in Lewiston where she lives. She ended up hitting the vehicle, left, that was parked in the lot near Action Screen Printing and continued into the wall where Maine Heritage Weavers is located. While talking to police and firefighters, she noticed something leaking from under the car. After looking closely, she realized it was from a fish tank she had in the back seat that was half empty, and Blue, the Betta Fish she was "fish sitting" for her brothers girlfriend, was flopping around on her car seat. After scooping it up and putting it back in the tank, on the ground at right, it began swimming around. The owner of the car at left, Leah Philippon, was able to drive her vehicle from the scene, but the other had to be towed. There was no significant damage to the building.
