It is almost time for the 2018 Amercian Heart Association Lubbock Heart Walk.

This years fundraising event will be held on October 13th at Texas Tech. The purpose is to help folks create a healthy lifestyle and avoid a heart attack, stroke, and cardiovascular disease.

From the American Heart Association:

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the number one killer of all Americans. In fact, someone dies from cardiovascular disease every 39 seconds. The American Heart Association’s #LubbockHeartWalk will help fund the valuable CVD/stroke research, education, and advocacy efforts of the Association. Advocating for better health and raising awareness will make a difference in lives across the country. By walking individually or with a team, attendees can contribute to the difference the American Heart Association makes in the fight against cardiovascular disease.

If you would like to participate or get more information about this years walk you can visit the Lubbock Heart Walk Website!

So get out there and live healthy Lubbock!
