I walk 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. Will you be a Heart Walk Hero with me?
While our heartwalk this year will look different that in years past as we take our walk to a virtual experience, our needs are even greater with COVID. More people with heart disease, diabetes or hypertension are at a greater risk. The COVID-19 domino effect has the potential to drastically change the health and well-being of people in the US for many years, unless we work together to reduce the impact.
The AHA is investing up to $2.5 million to investigate the cardiovascular implications of coronavirus to fund fast-tracking scientific research. It will help to be understand the link between COVID-19 and its interaction with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.
