I’d like to take a moment and thank everyone who participated in this year’s Gulf Coast Start! Heart Walk.
Hundreds of friends, familes and co-workers came together in Spanish Fort this weekend, to raise awareness and research dollars for the American Heart Association.
The weather was touch-and-go. It rained for much of the morning. But the sun came out just in time for the walk.
Fox10 News was a proud media sponsor.
I was honored to spearhead the event and several members from the Fox10 News family laced up their walking shoes for a great cause.
We had a fabulous turnout!
So far donations have totaled to just over $107,000. However, the event goal is $370,000. Yes, they are still taking donations if anyone is interested.
The American Heart Association is the largest voluntary health organization working to prevent, treat and defeat heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. These diseases are the Nation’s No.1 and No.3 killers, and claim more than 865,000 American lives a year!
The American Heart Association cannot achieve its mission without you.
So thanks again for your support.
Here’s to living a more heart healthy life 🙂
