Why We Walk
2020 Midlands Heart Walk ** VIRTUAL EVENT **
We’re walking for our health and yours. For our parents, our children and our grandchildren. Who will you walk for?
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide and stroke ranks second globally. Please join our team or donate today and help us change this statistic.
The Heart Walk is a time of celebration, joy and inspiration. People unified in support of a single goal: to see a world free of heart disease and stroke.
I've had high blood pressure for almost 23 years. I have essential hypertension, meaning there isn't a known reason for a cause. Scary, yes kind of. Thankfully, I can take medicine each day to maintain an acceptable blood pressure level and thankfully I haven't had a heart attack or stroke. However, I'm at greater risk for a cardiac event than those who don't have high blood pressure even though I follow a mostly healthy lifestyle.
As you can imagine, this is an organization that is near and dear to my heart. With our help, research in the area of cardiovascular health can continue so that outcomes improve with those who have cardiovascular illness/disease.
Be a Heart Walk Hero with us and together we’ll help save lives.
