The Heart Walk Will Help To Save Lives

Posted: Updated:

We're less than a month away, from this year's Heart Walk for the American Heart Association.

Taking part in the even can help to save lives.

While this nation has made huge strides in the fight against heart disease, it is still taking more than 2100 lives every day.

So far, almost 700 people are a registered to take part in the Heart Walk.

It's at Oneok Field on the morning of Saturday, April 20th.

The Opening Ceremonies are at 8:00 a.m., with the walk starting at 9:00 a.m.

KTUL's Chief Meteorologist Jennifer Zeppelin will emcee the event.

You can register as a team member or as an individual with the adjoining web link.

While the Heart Walk raises valuable funds for research, it's also intended to emphasize the importance of walking our daily lives.

Almost all the factors that influence heart disease are improved by regular walking.

It lowers weight, blood pressure, blood glucose and bad cholesterol.

It can also be a healthy social activity that doesn't require a lot of equipment or an expensive gym membership.

Just 30 minutes of walking each day can have benefits and it can be broken up into smaller segments, to fit your schedule.
