CCSO Promotes Heart Health At Annual Walk

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office realizes that heart disease and defects can affect anyone. The best way to avoid heart-related illnesses is by taking preventive measures such as exercising, eating healthier and going for routine medical check-ups.

The American Heart Association dedicates itself to "building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke" through its research, programs and support systems. AHA helps patients and their loved ones deal with the physical and emotional aspects of heart disease.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office supports AHA’s efforts to promote heart health and is proud to participate in the 2012 Collier Heart Walk.

The 3.1-mile walk is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 3, at Cambier Park in Naples. Informational booths will be set up at 8 a.m., followed by the walk at 9 a.m.
