WALKER COUNTY AMERICAN HEART WALK
Huntsville Memorial Hospital was the presenting sponsor of the 2014 Walker County American Heart Walk held on September 27, 2014. The event featured fitness demonstrations, representatives from local law enforcement agencies, activities for
children offered by the Huntsville Family YMCA and the Boys and Girls Club, and over 400 participants walking for this important cause. The walk began with survivors who were wearing red baseball hats.
The American Heart Association is the largest voluntary health organization working to prevent, treat and defeat heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. These diseases, the Nation's Number 1 and Number 4 killers, claim more than
813,804 American lives a year.
Sam Houston State University’s Sammy Bearkat even joined the 2014 American Heart Walk.
In 2014, our community contributed to the cause by raising $25,182 at the annual Heart Walk. However, our commitment to this cause is about more than fundraising, it is also about encouraging each of us to embrace an overall healthier lifestyle.
The American Heart Association has set a ten-year goal to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent while reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent by the year 2020. We are closer to achieving that goal thanks to the walkers, donors and volunteers who accepted the challenge to help fight heart disease and stroke at the 2014 Walker County American Heart Walk. We cannot achieve our mission without each one of you!
Many thanks to Huntsville Memorial Hospital staff for the great turnout at the Walker County Heart Walk on Sept. 27. Huntsville Memorial Hospital was the second largest team at the event, and raised over $2000 for the American Heart Associationís fight against heart disease and stroke.
