I walk to honor my parents -- my dad is a heart attack and sextuple bypass survivor; my mom has an aortic aneurysm. I walk to honor two young cousins born with congenital heart defects and going strong. I walk for the many survivors -- and family members of folks we've lost -- whom I've met over 18+ years of my career with the AHA. I walk for health equity, because a person's zip code shouldn't dictate her life expectancy. I walk to remind myself my health matters, my family's health matters, and we all need to move more and eat better.
