Start! is a program that is structured for success in a corporate environment. It generates a culture of physical activity and health to encourage employees to live longer, heart-healthy lives through walking. Companies can themselves become 'Fit-Friendly' companies. The Start! Heart Walk is the culmination of 365 days of walking with an amazing one-day celebration - a celebration that will save lives by raising money to support research and community education programs. The Start! Heart Walk Dallas is a 3 mile walk.
You're Making a Difference. Since 1924 the American Heart Association has helped protect people of all ages and ethnicities from the ravages of heart disease and stroke. These diseases, the Nation's No.1 and No.3 killers, claim more than 910,000 American lives a year. The association invested more than $474 million in fiscal year 2004-05 for research, professional and public education, and advocacy so people across America can live stronger, longer lives.
Thanks to all our walkers, donors and volunteers who have accepted the challenge to help fight heart disease and stroke. We cannot achieve our mission without each one of you.
