We're all tied to heart disease and stroke in some way, and we must change that. Join your friends, family and co-workers to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.
By registering for the Heart Walk today, you are taking the first step to save lives. Every walker who joins, every dollar donated means more research, more people trained in lifesaving CPR, more medical breakthroughs and more champions for equitable health.
As we close out our first 100 years and begin the next, our work remains as important as ever. Join us in the next chapter of our relentless work to end heart disease and stroke.
We want to thank our proud sponsors of the American Heart Association's Heart Walk. Their generosity helps us in our mission to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.
I support the American Heart Association because the mission is clear – to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Who wouldn’t want that? Imagine a world where everyone, everywhere had the opportunity to be healthy? That not only means getting enough exercise and enough healthy foods to eat, but having equitable access to the care you need, having the ability to manage stress and to feel empowered enough to ACT and perform bystander CPR in a time of crisis! That’s a world I believe in. And that’s a world I’m fighting for.
Unfortunately, the path to be Healthy for Good, is met with several hurdles and obstacles for many of our area residents. Access to the very things that are essential to being healthy are limited and scarce in certain segments of our community. Fighting for ALL means just that. ALL should have the opportunity to live longer, healthier lives. And by supporting the American Heart Association, I know I am doing my part, to create a heart healthy community accessible to everyone. Will you join me?
