Chances are, you’ve known someone in your life that has struggled with a heart disease or stroke.

In fact, according to the CDC, every 42 seconds, someone in the United States has a heart attack, and every 4 minutes, someone dies of stroke.

The 25th annual Heart & Stroke Walk is this Saturday, September 15 at Sugar House Park from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

The event helps to bring awareness and raise funds for research.

Greg Summerhays is the 2018 Heart & Stroke Walk Chair.

“Since the inception of the Heart & Stroke Walk 25 years ago, mortality rates from cardiovascular disease and stroke have plummeted by 45 percent,” Summerhays said.

Doug Tapking, a stroke survivor, and Summerhays joined us in studio to talk about the walk.

The event is a non-competitive walk that everyone can participate in.

In addition to the walk, there will be a kid zone, standing yoga, stationary biking, food, and a relaxation station.

Heart and stroke survivors can participate in a Miracle Mile survivor route and will receive special survivor baseball caps – red for heart survivors and white for stroke survivors.
