WALK 4HRT - Southern Maine Heart Walk Supported by Joe Bornstein

On Sunday May 19th, the American Heart Association’s annual Southern Maine Heart Walk cruised around Portland’s Back Cove to raise money to fight heart disease.

The annual event works to combat the fact that health today in the U.S. has taken a step back, as millions of Americans are at risk for heart disease and stroke. Statistics show that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women are at risk for heart disease with cardiovascular disease the No. 1 killer in the U.S.

The funds raised in the Heart Walk support various projects including:

  • Research for doctors so they can better prevent and treat heart disease among patients
  • Acquiring life-saving information and influencing those who need it most, in ways such as how to eat better, recognize the warning signs of heart attack, and speak with a doctor about critical health choices.

Between obesity and the risk of heart disease and stroke, some experts today predict children are not expected to live as long as their parents -- the first time ever for an entire generation’s life expectancy to drop.

The goal of the American Heart Association is to improve cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% by 2020 and they are doing so by focusing on healthy eating, physical activity, and children’s health. This movement is a national initiative for change through simple behavior adjustments that help people embrace a healthier lifestyle to feel better and live longer.

We are proud to support the American Heart Association and their ongoing efforts to put healthy back into peoples' hearts.
