America’s Greatest Heart Run And Walk 2013

Where will you be on March 2nd?  Thousands of people will take the streets near Utica College and through New York Mills that Saturday  for America’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk.  Some years it snows, some years it’s freezing cold but regardless of the weather, the event is always a great way to exercise and help a good cause too.

The event raises money for the American Heart Association to help fight heart disease and stroke.   Last year $1,102,201 was raised locally.  This year’s goal is $1,143,000.   Why do so many take part in the Heart Run and Walk?  Here’s a scary stat.  Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of Americans.  According to the American Heart Association, every 38 seconds someone dies from CVD.  Taking part in the Heart Run and Walk, whether as walker, runner or making a donation helps save lives.  Did you know heart disease kills more woman than any type of cancer combined?  The money you help raise will be used for research and education to stop this number one killer of Americans.  There are plenty of places to register for the Heart Run and Walk or you can sign up online.  Get some friends and co-workers together and form a team or go it alone.  Either way, you’ll be making a difference.  Everything you need to know is on the American Heart Association’s website.  Don’t forget our sister station, WIBX, has their Heart Radiothon too on March 1st and 2nd, which is another way to help raise money to fight heart disease.
