2021 Philadelphia Heart Walk
CardioVIPULar.. the Beat Lives On
Last year we walked for our health. This year we are walking in remembrance of our beloved dad, Vipul. Our goal is to bring awareness to the South Asian community. If you are reading this please take the time to bring awareness to your homes. Educate your loved ones, push them to get at least 30-60 minutes of cardiovascular activity in a day and then some!
- There is a 40% higher chance of mortality from heart attacks among South Asians than the average population.
- According to a WHO report, by 2020, South Asians will comprise 25% of the world's population but will suffer over 50% of the world's cardiovascular deaths
- Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide and stroke ranks second globally.
