American Heart Association walk aims to reach goal by 2020

Normal, Ill - The American Heart Association's McLean County Heart and Stroke Walk is an opportunity to celebrate survivors and honor those who have lost their lives to heart disease and stroke. 

This time, for the 25th year, Illinois State's quad was full of students and groups of people ready to walk in an effort to raise funds and awareness about heart disease.  Hundreds came out to support this cause, and the American Heart Association has a specific goal in mind for the next couple of years.

"We're really trying to raise funds to increase the research and educational programs so hopefully we can reach the goal of the American Heart Association to reduce heart disease by 20 percent, by 2020," says co-chair of the event Kurt Rudsinski.

Kurt supports the American Heart Association in remembrance of his mother who passed away from congestive heart failure in June of 2018.
