Many of us know someone that has directly been affected by heart disease. You may know quite a few people yourself that have suffered heart attacks, strokes or other form of cardiovascular disease. Take a minute to think about those you’ve known throughout your life. The list is getting long isn’t it?
It’s a staggering fact that 1 in 3 Americans will someday be affected. Heart disease is the #1 killer of Americans—MORE THAN ALL CANCERS COMBINED!
What are you doing to prevent yourself or family members from becoming a statistic? If your answer is, “Nothing,” now is the time to get educated and start working toward a healthier lifestyle.
Join us May 19th for the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk! You’ll learn ways to get healthy and learn the warning signs of heart attack, stroke and heart disease in general. We’ll start walking around downtown St. Louis at 9am with the last lap taking place on the warning track of the field at Busch Stadium! It’s your chance to see the field from the player’s perspective!
