Labor Day has come and gone and the kids are back in school. Both of these are signs that fall is just around the corner but there is another sign of fall in Washington and that is the American Heart Association Heart & Stroke Walks.
Washington has three Heart & Stroke Walks so we hope you are able to join us at one near you.
The Heart & Stroke Walk celebrates those who have made lifestyle changes and encourages many more to take the pledge to live healthier lifestyles while raising the dollars needed to fund life-saving research and initiatives.
In 2011 12,996 people in Washington died from heart disease and stroke. We, the American Heart Association, want to lower that number and that is why we work to raise awareness and money for research. This event is free but donations are always welcome.
Be sure to stop by the advocacy booth and sign a postcard in support of funding the Safe Routes to School program in our state.
We hope to see you at the Heart & Stroke Walk!
