2012 Heart Walk at Tom Brown Park

By  | 

Tallahassee, Florida -About two thousand people showed up Saturday for the 2012 Big Bend Heart Walk.

The three mile walk around Tom Brown Park raises money to fight Heart Disease and stroke.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, Heart Disease and stroke are the number one and number four killers of Americans.

The CDC says about one in every three deaths are a result of Heart Disease or Stroke.

"Just simply walking every day, a mile or two a day is one of the best things you can do to make yourself healthier. You can also adopt healthier eating habits, low fats, things like that," says John Detelich who helped organize the walk.

The walk hopes to raise about $200,000 to fight the disease.
