Join Don’s Mobile Glass for the 2015 Stanislaus Heart Walk.
Don’s Mobile Glass wants the help of all our customers in fighting heart disease. You can do this in one of two ways (or, you could do both): Walk with us at the 2015 Stanislaus Heart Walk at the MJC East Campus on Saturday, Sept. 26! Or donate. Don’s is accepting donations for the American Heart Association at all our stores in Modesto, Manteca, Turlock and Merced.
The heart walk is just one way Don’s participates in community activities and tries to give back to the neighbors who have given us so much. And, as the Heart Association points out: Heart disease remains the nation’s leading cause of death. It’s been the No. 1 killer for more than 90 years. Strokes hold their ranking at No. 4 on the list of leading causes of death.
But, there is hope. The association notes that a report last spring from the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, GA, shows the stroke death rate fell 2.6 percent and the heart disease death rate dropped 1.8 percent in 2012, the most current year for which those statistics are available.
The CDC report is part of a much larger trend over the years – including a more than 30 percent decline in the death rates for heart disease, stroke and overall cardiovascular diseases from 2000 to 2012, the association says.
“This very encouraging trend is what we hoped to see, and we should all feel proud of our contributions to these findings through our lifesaving initiatives at the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association,” said AHA President Elliott Antman, M.D., professor of medicine and associate dean at Harvard Medical School and a senior physician in the Cardiovascular Division of Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. “We have much work left to do, but we’re heading in the right direction.”
Let’s keep those numbers dropping. Join us for the September walk.
