We Walk to Save Lives!
2022 Greater Washington Region Heart Walk
We're a relentless force! Now imagine how much stronger we'll be working as a team!
Heart disease is still the no. 1 killer in our nation and stroke ranks no. 2 worldwide. You could do something to change that.
We are walking together - not only for our own health, but also for yours. And for the health of our parents, our children, and our grandchildren.
The Heart Walk is a time of celebration, joy, and inspiration. It's also an event where people work together to support one single goal - to create a world free of heart disease and stroke.
Most people are connected to someone - family, friends, colleagues, it could be your Amazon delivery driver! Everyone is impacted somehow. My personal story is still ongoing. I am doing this for my parents. Two years ago, my stepfather, who is a wonderful dad to my sister and I, had to have open heart surgery after never having a single problem with his heart in all his life. Things changed in an instant and there was no option. Luckily for my family, he came out strong as ever. Now two years later, my mother (who also worked for Leidos for 15 years before retiring!), who has had heart problems her whole life, needs the very same surgery and it must be done in 6 weeks time. This woman is my world. I cannot imagine a place without her. I'm walking in honor of my parents, and in honor of your loved one.
As a part of a Leidos team that supports the Justice programs, we strive to make the world a safer place for everyone, and it still applies here. Let's reduce the risk of the number 1 killer in the U.S.. Please join me and fight for your loved one affected by heart disease, fight for yourself, or fight with your colleagues or friends to show support! Be a heart hero. Be a relentless force. Be a part of an unstoppable team. Join us now and together we will help save lives.
