When you join 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! The funds you raise in the Heart Walk will support projects like these:
- Putting up-to-the-minute research into doctors' hands so they can better prevent and treat heart disease among 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.
- Getting life-saving information to those who need it most.
- Information that can save a life, like how to eat better, how to recognize the warning signs of heart attack, and how to talk to a doctor about critical health choices.
