American Heart Association: Heart Walk/Run 2010

The leading cause of deaths in the US is not from crime, natural disaster, accidents or even cancer. Heart disease and stroke are responsible for more deaths that the next 7 combined. Luckily many of these diseases are preventable with regular exercise and good diet and simply a healthy life style. However, there are many heart related illnesses that affect many Americans regardless of their health. This is why I am participating in the American Heart Association Twin Cities Heart walk.

Having several close family members being affected by heart related illnesses I would like to help raise awareness so that others would not have to go through what they did. I am not only helping to raise awareness but also funds for the American Heart Association. Below is a link a donation page that I would encourage you to donate to. There is a minimum amount of $25.00 USD, so if you would like to donate less email me and I can provide you with information on how to submit a different amount.

If you are unable to donate you can still help by simply going out and being more active in your own health, eating right and exercising can greatly reduce the chances of heart related illnesses, so get out there and get active.
