The American Heart Association is asking Los Angeles to take a stand against heart disease and stroke – the nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers – by giving from the heart during a day of Inspired Living, Inspired Giving on Wednesday, Sept. 10. On this day, individuals, companies and organizations are encouraged to step up their fundraising and make a contribution toward the Heart Walks taking place this fall in Long Beach, Santa Clarita, Santa Monica, Pasadena and Palmdale. Local community members are also urged to make a contribution in honor someone who inspires them to live healthier.
Dollars raised by the American Heart Association through events like the Heart Walk save lives, create memories and give hope to people through cardiovascular research funding, community education and awareness campaigns, health advocacy and heart and stroke care improvement initiatives.
Heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases claim the lives of more than 831,000 men, women and children in the United States every year. The Heart Walk is an annual tradition that brings the community together to raise awareness and critical funds to fight these diseases. The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association believe that everyone deserves to live a healthier, longer life. Life is Why the AHA/ASA is committed to the mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. For more information, click HERE.
