WLOX Editorial: Walk to save lives

You have an opportunity to fight the number one killer of Americans. Cardiovascular disease kills every 39 seconds.

The Gulf Coast Heart Walk for the American Heart Association is this Saturday at Jones Park in Gulfport. If you can, we encourage you to join in this fund raising event that funds research for doctors to prevent and treat heart disease.

This is not just for adults. Some 36 thousand babies are born with heart defects each year. And research is key to saving those young lives.

You can start a team, join a team or walk as individual in the Gulf Coast Heart Walk.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
