Has heart disease affected you or someone you know? Odds are, the answer is unfortunately yes. According to American Heart Association someone dies of cardiovascular disease every 39 seconds! Research as shown that walking just 30 minutes a day can reduce your risk of coronary heart disease and stroke, improve your blood pressure, enhance your overall well-being and so much more.
The University of Toledo is a proud sponsor of the 2014 Toledo Heart Walk & 5K Run. This event takes place on May 31st at The Huntington Center in beautiful downtown Toledo.
To help kick off this event, Rocket Wellness is participating in National Walking Day April 2 (yup! It’s a real day)! Our staff will be on hand at The Morse Center from 12:00pm-1:00pm to help you sign up for the walk/run or make a donation to this wonderful cause.
