2019 Bay Area Heart Walk
November 9th, 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!
Our hearts go out to those who have been affected by devastating storms over the past few days. Heart disease and stroke patients are even more vulnerable to the effects of a disaster, and stress and trauma also intensify, which can lead to an increase in cardiovascular disease risk, so we’d like to remind you of some resources and tips that your fundraising dollars make possible.
Our Disaster Resources page includes a wide range of helpful information, and the American Heart Association remains a resource for information and guidance. Visit heart.org for the latest on heart and stroke health. And we encourage cardiovascular disease survivors and their loved ones to join our free online Support Network to share stories and find resources to help on their journey to recovery. It includes a forum specifically for hurricane support.
By participating in the Heart Walk, you’re joining a million Heart Walk Heroes from across the nation raising funds for lifesaving science. Science that can teach us all how to live longer and be Healthy For Good.
Take a few minutes to consider the lives you are going to help change for the better through your leadership and donations. We’re talking more moms, dads, brothers, aunts and babies' lives saved. Help keep hearts everywhere beating. Let’s take steps together to cure heart disease and stroke.
