2019 Wichita Heart Walk & F.A.S.T. 5K
Saturday, June 8, 2019
Life is why we walk.
Thanks to all our walkers, donors and volunteers who have accepted the challenge to help fight heart disease and stroke. We cannot achieve our mission without each one of you!
Did you know that people with gum disease have nearly double the risk for heart disease as those with healthy gums?
Delta Dental of Kansas and the American Heart Association recognize the important connection between oral health and overall health. That’s why we’ve partnered to bring you the LifeSmile Change Award.
A unique and new contest, the LifeSmile Change Award will be presented to individuals who’ve made positive changes to improve their quality of life and overall health. The nominees may have lost weight, committed to eating healthier, improved their cholesterol through exercise and diet, or made a commitment to preventive care. We want to find champions of change and use their stories to inspire others!
What was the change? What impact did the change have on overall health? What did the person do to stay on track? Have those actions inspired change in others?
The winners will be recognized at the 2019 Wichita Heart Walk and F.A.S.T. 5K on June 8st, 2019, at Wichita State University and will also receive a “healthy” prize package, courtesy of Delta Dental. Apply online. Deadline for applications is May 17th, 2019.
