Currently, heart disesases are the #1 killer of Americans and stroke doesn't fall far behind at #5. 1 in 3 women will die of heart disease. Stroke is the leading cause of disability in the United States. What people don't know, is that heart disease is 80% preventable. Physical activity and a healthy diet can help prevent you or your loved ones from suffering from either of these terrible diseases. Join the AHA/ASA marathon team and help us create a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. For every $1 that is raised in the Greater Pittsburgh Region, $3 is allocated back to research and advocacy right here in Southwestern Pennsylvania. There is currently over $13 million invested in research in Pittsburgh - help us get one step closer to ending heart disease and stroke. You can make a difference!
