Red River Valley Heart Walk

Did you know that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of all Americans? In fact, someone dies from CVD every 38 seconds! Heart disease also kills more women than all forms of cancer combined.  And congenital cardiovascular defects are the most common cause of infant death from birth defects.

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.

    The American Heart Association's My Heart. My Life. Is a comprehensive new health, wellness and fitness platform to empower Americans to get healthier.  Take the pledge to live a healthier lifestyle while raising the dollars needed to fund life-saving research and initiatives. We need your support! Bring your energy, your passion, and your stories – let your footsteps be heard!
