Thousands Head To Falls Park For Heart Walk

August 23, 2014, 5:55 PM

Thousands Head To Falls Park For Heart Walk
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

According to the American Heart Association's Heart Walk website, nothing kills more Americans than cardiovascular disease, taking one more life every 39 seconds. So it only made sense for thousands of people met in downtown Sioux Falls today to raise money and walk to fight the disease.

The American Heart Association held its yearly Eastern South Dakota Heart Walk this morning on north Phillips Avenue. Chrissy Meyer, director of Corporate and Media Relations for the organization in South Dakota, estimated that despite the rainy weather, somewhere between 2,500 and 3,000 people attended. She liked the event's odds of meeting this year's $210,000 fundraising goal.

"The dollars that we raise here today are going to be used right here in the state of South Dakota, to fund our mission, which includes research, um awareness and education programs, and ensuring that everyone has access to the best heart care in the nation,” Meyer said.

And even KELOLAND had a team at the event, with Sammi Bjelland, Matt Holson, and Jared Ransom all representing KELO News.
