|Our Mom Is Why|
|Heart disease is the No. 1 killer in the world. Stroke ranks second globally and is a leading cause of severe disability. Some form of cardiovascular condition affects more than one in every three adult Americans including our Mom. |
Too many families are losing loved ones of all ages. Each year, heart diseases kill more than 786,000 Americans, which is larger than the population of several states (Alaska, North Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming).
That's why we're joining the American Heart Association's Running Team. We're raising money to help save and improve lives of the millions of Americans living with heart disease, stroke or a cardiovascular condition.
Your donation will help provide research, education and emergency care. It will help more Americans understand the threat and know that cardiovascular diseases and stroke are largely preventable. Risks can be lowered by adhering to what the AHA call "Life’s Simple 7": not smoking, being physically active, maintaining a healthy body weight, eating a healthy diet, controlling blood pressure, controlling cholesterol and controlling blood sugar.
With your help we can improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent, and reduce deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent by the year 2020!
Let's make that happen. Thanks in advance for your support.
