Millions of Americans live with heart conditions that can turn deadly, but the American Heart Association (AHA) is committed to funding research, awareness and care. Every year, Alaskans take a Saturday in April to help to raise money for the AHA, while also practicing heart healthy habits. On April 21, joins Alaskans in the Alaska Heart Run.
This is the 40th anniversary of the Alaska Heart Run. All money from the event will go toward the AHA’s efforts to fund research and community programs that help to fight cardiovascular diseases and stroke. But participants also get something in return. Walking is one way to stay heart healthy. Walking and running have many important benefits for your heart including lowering your cholesterol and blood pressure, and decreasing your risk of diabetes.
By participating in important events like this, we are supporting our community and it’s members. At Midnight Sun Home Care, we practice a giver’s gain attitude. We believe that supporting other local organizations benefits everyone in our community. Our friends over at Peak Health Dentistry do the same. Dr. Ben Mishler is a big supporter of the Alaska Heart Run. He has also been actively involved in the Alaska Heart Run for many years and we’re proud to see other local businesses throwing their support behind important nonprofits in our community. Thank you Dr. Mishler and Peak Health Dentistry for supporting Alaskans.
