This weekend is the annual Grand Rapids Heart Walk at Ah-Nab-Awen Park! Townsquare Media and WFGR are media sponsors for the walk to bring awareness to heart related issues. Did you know that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of all Americans? In fact, someone dies from CVD every 38 seconds! Heart disease also kills more women than all forms of cancer combined. And congenital cardiovascular defects are the most common cause of infant death from birth defects.

I know. My Dad has had CVD and my mom has had congestive heart failure. So this hits home. You can help. When you join the Grand Rapids Heart Walk, you join more than a million people in 300+ cities across America in taking a stand against heart disease and helping save lives!

Here is the Grand Rapids Heart Walk website to learn more and we will see you at Ah-Nab-Awen Park Saturday Morning!
