One person dies every 36 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease and every 40 seconds, someone in this country has a stroke. Those are sobering statistics and while there had been a slight decline around 2010, it has been rising in the last 5 years. I walk (with my pups!) because I know that with every step, I’m making a difference in someone’s life. And when combined with a million other Heart Walk Heroes across the nation, we have an even greater impact toward curing heart disease and stroke. Heart disease remains too prevalent.
Your donation will fund groundbreaking research that literally keeps hearts beating and helps people have longer, healthier lives.
My heartfelt (pun intended) and sincere thanks for any contribution you can make. And if you aren't able to contribute, please go take a walk outside for 30 minutes -- daily if possible. That will be a significant contribution to the cause!
PS - the picture is from 2018 when Margeaux and Mia participated in the WDC Heart Walk event. It was Mia's birthday that day and they both drew a crowd of fans!
