2019 Crossroads Heart & Stroke Walk
Cardiovascular disease is the #1 Killer of Americans, but together we can take steps to fight it, prevent it... end it. Join us on Saturday, February 2nd for the Inaugural Crossroads Heart & Stroke Walk, Victoria's family-friendly 5K that promotes healthy lifestyles and raises funds towards cardiovascular research and educational programs for the American Heart Association. The non-competitive 5K walk is open to all age groups and includes a survivor area, a tribute wall, team photos, and much more. All activities are free and open to the public; participants who choose to fundraise are eligible for prizes. Money raised from the Heart & Stroke Walk funds cardiovascular research and education. The American Heart Association currently funds more than $31 million in research in Texas. The good news is that these diseases are largely preventable through a healthy diet and physical activity. Research has shown walking to be the single most effective form of exercise to achieve ideal cardiovascular health and just 30 minutes a day can improve critical numbers like weight, blood pressure and cholesterol, reducing your risk for heart disease and stroke. The 2019 Crossroads Heart & Stroke Walk is presented by DeTar Healthcare System and locally sponsored by Budget Blinds, HEB, Prosperity Bank, AEP Texas, Atzenhoffer Chevrolet, Crossroads Diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Radiology, Formosa Plastics Corporation Texas, Jet Maintenance, University of Houston- Victoria, Victoria Anesthesiology Associates, LLP, Victoria Heart and Vascular, Yoakum Community Hospital and The UPS Store. Additional media support is provided by the Victoria Advocate and the Victoria Television Group. For information on joining or starting a team, visit www.CrossroadsHeartWalk.org. Questions?
