2022 Metro St. Louis Heart Walk
Jonesing for a Walk
Come join our team! I'm walking for a few people close to my heart. My immediate family has been impacted by heart disease in some life-altering ways. My father, who is no longer with us, had triple bypass surgery about 10 years ago. He always said the extra years he got to spend with us were so important to him and he was so thankful for the cardiologists that helped to save his life.
This fall my brother was personally imapcted by stroke. He is fortunate that is was caught fast, and he received amazing care. However, I learned again first-hand how stroke and heart disease can impact even those who are younger.
In addition to these personal reasons, I hope you join our team to walk for additional health resources in our community --right here in St. Louis. There is so much more we can be doing to share resources for healthier living and heart disease prevention.
Here are some statistics from the American Heart Association that share the opportunity more directly.
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.
Be a Heart Walk Hero with us and together we’ll help save lives.
