#Brevard Heart Walk 2014

I think it’s important to instill a desire to help others in our young people! Today we participated in the Brevard Heart Walk with our Publix team to raise money for the American Heart Association! This is our first year participating in this walk though we have been walking in our local March of Dimes walk for several years. Not only is it a great cause, but it’s a fun experience as well. Local businesses donate snacks, drinks, & all sorts of goodies which the kids (and myself) love, & we get fresh air & exercise while raising money for research & getting life-saving information to those who need it most!

Did you know that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of all Americans? In fact, someone dies from CVD every 39 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.
