Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. The good news is that you can lower your risk of getting it or having a stroke by simply moving more. Many types of activity can help your heart—going on a hike or taking the stairs, biking to the store or around the block, wheeling yourself in your wheelchair.
Celebrate American Heart Month with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute by pledging to be more physically active to benefit your heart health between now and March 2, 2018 in honor of American Heart Month. Choose the physical activities you like to do and #MoveWithHeart.
