Joining the heart walk can boost physical and emotional health. It’s about coming together to socially connect and get moving while making a great impact in our community and saving lives. It’s personal. Everyone has a reason to live a longer, healthier life or a reason why they’re motivated to save the life of another. It brings together families, co-workers, and friends to have fun while helping millions of others at the same time.
The funds raised save lives from heart disease and stroke, the nation’s number one and number five killers. It also funds science that gives healthcare providers the tools they need when it counts, in the moments when someone’s life is in their hands.
It’s recommended to get at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes per week of vigorous aerobic activity spread throughout the week. Research has shown that walking at a lively pace at least 150 minutes a week can help you: Think better, feel better, and sleep better. Reduce your risk of serious diseases like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and several types of cancer. Improve your blood pressure, blood sugar, and blood cholesterol levels. Increase your energy and stamina. Improve your mental and emotional well-being and reduce the risk of depression. Improve memory and reduce your risk of dementia. Boost bone strength and reduce your risk of osteoporosis. Prevent weight gain.
