WMUR’s Erin Fehlau and The Mill’s Laura Stelchook to host morning celebration
The American Heart Association’s New Hampshire Heart Walk is scheduled for Sunday, June 4th at Manchester’s Livingston Park. This year’s event begins with a celebration starting at 10 AM, hosted by WMUR’s Erin Fehlau and 96.5 The Mill’s Laura Stelchook.
Dan Cronin, Founder and President at CGI Business Solutions and 2023 New Hampshire Heart Walk Chair, has set a goal with his committee to raise $130,000 through corporate donations and walk teams. “The Heart Walk celebrates heart and stroke survivors while honoring the lives that have been lost,” said Cronin. “The event brings together families, co-workers, and friends to have fun while also saving lives by funding research and educating our local community on prevention and warnings signs of heart attack and stroke. Since the inception of the Heart Walk, mortality rates from cardiovascular disease and stroke have decreased by 45 percent.”
Heart disease and stroke are leading causes of death in New Hampshire. The Association is the world’s leading voluntary organization focused on heart and brain health. Heart Walk participants will receive useful prevention information aimed at inspiring them to improve their heart and brain health.
“By participating in the Heart Walk, you’re helping to save more children who have congenital heart defects, train thousands in lifesaving CPR, and fund groundbreaking brain and heart research,” said Cronin. “The Association has provided more than $9.5 million in research grants to New Hampshire institutions over the years.”
The New Hampshire Heart Walk is sponsored by CGI Business Solutions, Metro Walls, CMC’s New England Heart & Vascular Institute, Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Concord, and Northeast Delta Dental. Media sponsors are 96.5 The Mill and WMUR-TV. To register for the Heart Walk, visit www.NHHeartWalk.org.
