Walk for health: 2016 Waccamaw Heart & Stroke Walk

May 11th, 2016 by

walkMark your calendars now for the 2016 Waccamaw Heart & Stroke Walk happening Saturday, October 15th, 2016!

Beach Automotive Group will be there in full force helping the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association reduce deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20%. Do you know why we help? Because someone dies from CVD every 39 seconds! Heart disease also kills more women than all forms of cancer combined.  Congenital cardiovascular defects are the most common cause of infant death from birth defects.

You can help too!

When you join 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!

The funds you raise in the Heart Walk will support projects like:

  • Putting up-to-the-minute research into doctors’ hands so they can better prevent and treat heart disease among patients.
  • Groundbreaking pediatric heart and stroke research. About 36,000 babies are born with heart defects each year —research is the key to saving babies’ lives.
  • Getting life-saving information to those who need it most – information that can save a life, like how to eat better, how to recognize the warning signs of heart attack, and how to talk to a doctor about critical health choices.

Come help us help others! You can walk, you can donate and you can be a sponsor! There are so many ways to help end cardiovascular disease and stroke. Here are just a few ways your donation will help! This year’s goal is $255,000 and with your help the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association will meet that goal!

We want to see you there! What are you waiting for? You can get started right now by heading over to the official website of the The 2016 Waccamaw Heart & Stroke Walk and get registered! This year’s walk takes place at Plyler Park in Myrtle Beach. Activities start by the Skywheel and the Walk begins at 10am.
