There was also the #MoveMoreMD Corporate Walking Challenge. Over 20 companies walked a total of 1,653,173 steps. This is equivalent to about 800 miles or a round trip from Baltimore to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Everyone at the American Heart Association would like to congratulate our National Walking Day winner Saulewing with 66,308 steps. We look forward to seeing everyone at the #MDHeartWalk on October 14th!
Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
