Thousands Walk In 2013 'Heart Walk'



Bookmark and Share

Three-thousand men, women, children, and even some dogs gathered together Saturday to help fight heart disease and stroke.  They took a walk around Sioux Falls for the American Heart Association’s 2013 ‘Heart Walk,’ in an effort to raise money and awareness.

Research has shown walking is the single most effective form of exercise to achieve heart health.

Seventy-one-year-old Sonja Carlberg has survived two heart attacks. She has had five stints and undergone quadruple bypass surgery. Carlberg said seeing so many people come out to support the fight against heart disease is amazing.

“Heart disease is the number one killer of women. And I don't think people know that,” Carlberg said.

The event was free, but the American Heart Association was taking donations. Their goal was to raise $220,000, which the event’s coordinators expect to exceed.
