You can help. 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.
