AHA to Host Pasadena Heart Walk this Saturday

P1030792webThe American Heart Association invites the community to join its annual Heart Walk at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena this Saturday, Sept. 26.

 Team up with family, friends and coworkers and together take steps to fight heart disease and stroke. There is no fee to participate. Register your team at www.HeartWalkLA.org. 

The Heart Walk aims to create a culture of health by engaging community members in physical activity and heart-healthy living, while raising much-needed funds to fight heart disease and stroke. It includes a non-competitive 5K walk/run and a festival area featuring interactive and fun activities, health information, Kids Zone, entertainment and more.

In addition to Pasadena, walks will also take place in Long Beach, Santa Clarita and Palmdale. The combined goal for the four walks is to raise $2 million in support of the American Heart Association’s mission of building healthier lives, free of heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases.

 Heart disease and stroke are the nation’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers. On the other hand, regular physical activity, such as brisk walking for as little as 30 minutes a day, has proven health benefits, including increased energy and circulation, as well as reduced risk of heart disease and stroke. The Heart Walk inspires participants to embrace a renewed commitment to heart-healthy living through walking and other healthy habits.

 The Heart Walk is sponsored nationally by Subway and locally by Union Bank, USC Verdugo Hills Hospital and Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt.

 For more information and to register for the Heart Walk, visit www.HeartWalkLA.org, or contact Amanda Naughton at 213-291-7102 or amanda.naughton@heart.org.
