WHY: Heart disease is our nation's #1 killer, claiming nearly a million American lives a year, more than all forms of cancer combined. Stroke is the #5 killer and the leading cause of long term disability in all Americans. The Heart Walk will raise awareness and funds for the American Heart Association.
All funds will go towards research and education and will move AHA towards their 2020 mission goal, of reducing cardiovascular deaths and stroke by 20% while improving the health of all Americans by 20% by 2020.
Carol Holzman, Executive Director, The Moorings at Lewes, a Springpoint Senior Living full-service retirement community serves as Chair of the 2018 Southern Delaware Heart Walk.
