There’s more to Payton Jones than meets the eye! This vibrant 14 year old is a survivor. After suffering a cardiac arrest at a swim meet three years ago as a result of an undiagnosed rare disease, Payton has been committed to helping fight heart disease.
She has formed a walk team and walked each year since her event in the American Heart Walk to help raise funds for life saving research.
Now, she’s joining forces with the AHA again to help kids get an early start on being healthy by helping us ensure that restaurants meet nutrition standards in their kids meals and eliminate sugary drinks from kids meals.
Come visit Payton at the advocacy table at our American Heart Walk at Oakledge Park on Flynn Avenue in Burlington from 8:30-11:30am on Saturday, September 26th and sign a petition urging state leaders to require nutrition standards for restaurant meals that are marketed to kids.
