Walk the Walk

Did you know February is Heart Health month? Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the U.S. Fortunately, it can be prevented by making healthy choices and maintaining your well-being. Simply eat wisely, get in some activity every day, and manage your stress. You say you don’t have the time/energy/money to do that? Here’s some info. from the American Heart Association that can help you live a longer, heart-healthy life.

There’s a free event tomorrow (Saturday) that aims to bring awareness to heart health while raising funds to benefit organizations in Long Beach. The Red High Heels Walk invites men, women and children to walk a mile in red shoes, and encourages them to carry signs or banners to promote heart health awareness. It’s free, but you have to register. The walk begins at noon, and traverses the sidewalks on 2nd Street in BS. Don’t worry! You don’t have to wear high heels, but they do have to be red.

So, have some fun with your friends and family and make a step in the right direction to keep your ticker going strong…
