American Heart Association: Heart Walk an Opportunity to Get Healthy For Good™
The American Heart Association’s (www.heart.org) Healthy For Good™ movement is rallying millions across the country to live life healthier lives, inspire lasing change and unify people around the simple idea that making a small change today can create a difference for generations to come.
Now is the time to fight for lasting change. It’s time to put our health first and create a movement that truly lasts. It’s time that we commit to being Healthy For Good™.
How can you get started? By participating in the Healthy For Good™ Heart Walk! Heart Walks across the country educate participants of the risk factors of cardiovascular diseases and stroke, and what we can do to prevent it. Funds raised support local medical research and educational programs of the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association. Survivors of heart disease, stroke and related surgeries are honored the morning of the walk.
