WJH Participates in the American Heart Association’s 2017 Central Valley Heart & Stroke Walk

WJH was well-represented at the American Heart Association’s 2017 Central Valley Heart & Stroke Walk and Lawyers Have Heart Run, held this year at the beautiful Tesoro Viejo, an upcoming master planned community in Madera.

 

Now in its 25th year, the annual Heart and Stroke Walk is the largest local event for the association.  WJH was one of over 75 local businesses and 2,500 walkers and runners who showed up Saturday morning to participate in a timed 5k run and/or non-competitive 2-mile walk.  The American Heart Association raised nearly $280,000 in the months leading up to the event.

 

WJH is a proud supporter of the American Heart Association and raised over $4,000 for the event.  Chances are, you know someone who has been affected by heart disease or stroke.  One in three Americans has some form of cardiovascular disease, and stroke is the leading cause of disability in the United States.  All proceeds from the event went toward the American Heart Association’s overall goal of funding research to find better ways to treat and prevent cardiovascular diseases and stroke while providing educational health resources to the local region.
