Heart and Soul

You may already know that heart disease is the #1 killer of adults in the United States.

But did you know that heart disease kills more CHILDREN than all childhood cancers combined? 

Saving children from heart disease, obesity, and all the dangers that go with it was the focus of the Heart and Soul Ball put on by the American Heart Association. 

Because so many children are overweight and don’t exercise these days, there’s the possibility this could be the first generation of children who will not live as long as their parents!

The adults at the Ball got plenty of exercise dancing to “The Temptations”,  and lots of people looked like they spent considerable time in the gym. 


But we might do well to make sure our children are getting as much physical activity as we are!
