This year's campaign is all about creating a global community of Heart Heroes … people from all walks of life who are acting now to live longer, better, heart-healthy lives by making a promise:
A promise to our families to cook and eat more healthily
A promise to our children to exercise more and help them to be more active, to say no to smoking and help our loved ones to stop
A promise as a healthcare professional to help patients give up smoking and lower their cholesterol
A promise as a policymaker to support policies that promote healthy hearts
A promise as an employee to invest in heart-healthy workplaces
A simple promise … for My Heart, for Your Heart.
Cardiovascular disease is the world’s number one killer today. But it doesn’t need to be this way. By making just a few small changes to our lives, we can reduce our risk of heart disease and stroke, as well as improving our quality of life and setting a good example for the next generation. It’s about saying to yourself, the people you care about and individuals all around the world, “what can I do right now to look after MY HEART … and YOUR HEART?”
Check out our Heart & Sole 5k held in celebration of World Heart Day on September 21st 2019 at the Queen's Park Savannah, 3pm-7pm.
