In the U.S., heart disease and stroke remain the no. 1 and no. 5 killers of people, more than any cause, and likely even more, due to the impact of the novel coronavirus. Survivors of stroke and those living with a cardiovascular disease are more prone to complications and major risks from COVID-19.
The American Heart association, the nation’s oldest and largest not-for-profit organization, dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke, is on a mission to advance cardiovascular health for all by raising awareness, and by identifying and removing barriers to health care access and quality. We at GAVS are truly honored and privileged to join and support the AHA’s life saving initiatives.
The 2021 Philadelphia Heart Walk, taking place on Nov 6, 2021, is dedicated to championing the health and well-being of our community and you too can be a part of this mission. Participating in it will help drive the AHA’s fundraising efforts, celebrate heart & stroke survivors, and empower our constituents to live healthier and happier lives. The past editions of the Heart Walk have proven that no matter where we are, we can unite and stand together for a common cause.
We count on you to join the mission of saving lives for generations to come. Let’s protect hearts in the community!
