American Heart Association Walk is Tomorrow, October 13

Tomorrow, Saturday, October 13th is the day.  The day for a nice walk in downtown Grand Rapids.

But this walk is for a purpose.  It’s for the annual Heart Walk for the American Heart Association.

Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of all Americans!  In fact, someone dies from CVD every 38 seconds! Heart disease also kills more women than all forms of cancer combined. And congenital cardiovascular defects are the most common cause of infant death from birth defects.

I don’t know of anyone who hasn’t been affected the heart disease, so it is important that we all get involved if at all possible.

Tomorrow, you can help when you join the Heart Walk.  It all begins at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum.  You’ll be joining more than a million people in 300+ cities across America in taking a stand against heart disease and helping save lives!

And, the funds you raise in the Heart Walk will support projects like these:
Putting up-to-the-minute research into doctors’ hands so they can better prevent and treat heart disease among patients.
Groundbreaking pediatric heart and stroke research. About 36,000 babies are born with heart defects each year —research is the key to saving babies’ lives.
Getting life-saving information to those who need it most – information that can save a life, like how to eat better, how to recognize the warning signs of heart attack, and how to talk to a doctor about critical health choices.

Here is the link to the Grand Rapids Heart Walk.  Just click on that and get going.  It’s never too late to help.
