Walk for Healthier Hearts
Each year, heart disease and stroke claim more than 910,000 American Lives, making them the number 1 and number 3 killer diseases. However, there is hope. In fiscal year 2005-2006, the American Heart Association invested more than $543 million dollars in research, public and private education, and advocacy so people across American can live stronger, longer lives.
You can help too. Sign up to participate in the 2010 START! Tanglewood Heart and Stroke Walk held on October 16 at www.starttanglewoodnc.org and help the American Heart Association battle these killer diseases.
