I am participating in the American Heart Association Bay Area Heart Walk with Kaiser to encourage others to lower their risk for Heart Disease by increasing their physical exercise.
I've set a goal to raise $250 and plan to make a personal donation. I need at least 10 friends to donate as well. Those who donate $100 or more will receive a crochet heart pin.
..::According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention::..
"Some of the risk factors for heart disease cannot be controlled, such as your age or family history. But you can take steps to lower your risk by changing the factors you can control."
"Not getting enough physical activity can lead to heart disease. It also can increase the chances of having other medical conditions that are risk factors, including obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. Regular physical activity can lower your risk for heart disease."
Thanks for your consideration!
