Ongoing Heart Health Initiative: This event marks the official launch for Sisterhood Sharing Sessions ‘Sisterhood Strength Stride’, our on-going heart health initiative established on June 27, 2018, sparked by the act of walking in ‘Healthy Strides’ that help activate the heart towards good health. Our original tagline exclusive to our cause, ‘Strengthen heart health one stride at a time’.
Why We Walk
Our ‘Sisterhood Share Club’ Contributors are proud to walk as a collective for any woman that has been impacted by heart disease and to bring awareness as an act of prevention for all women. We walk for Mothers, Daughters, Sisters, Aunts, and Friends of women from all walks and stations in life to empower women towards good heart health.
According to the American Heart Association, ‘Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year-more than all cancers combined.’ Our ‘Sisterhood Share Club’ Contributors are comprised of an amazing community of women inspired to support organizations committed to women’s causes.
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide and stroke ranks second globally. Please join our team or donate today and help us change this statistic.
The Heart Walk is a time of celebration, joy, and inspiration. People unified in support of a single goal: to see a world free of heart disease and stroke.
Be a Heart Walk Hero with us and together we’ll help save lives.
