You can help. When you join Start! Heart Walk, you join more than a million people in 300+ cities across America in taking a stand against heart disease and helping save lives! (Find a city near you by visiting the website)
The funds raised for the Heart Walk will support projects like these:
-Preventation and treatment for patients
-Groundbreaking pediatric heart and stroke research (about 36,000 babies are born with heart defects each year - research is the key to saving babies lives)
This year I am getting an early start and I am recruiting walkers for the 2011 Seattle heart walk.
