About "Start! Dallas Heart Walk"

According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease and stroke are the number one and number three killers of Americans, respectively. Seventy percent of Americans do not get enough exercise, blaming lack of time and motivation. The Heart Walk event promotes physical activity and heart-healthy living in a fun family environment.

The 2009 "Start! Dallas Heart Walk" is scheduled for September 12, and will feature more than 180 Dallas-area companies and organizations on the three-mile walk through downtown Dallas.
