Urban Active Hosts "Cardiothon" To Benefit The American Heart Association On Sat, September 3rd

Across 5 states and 19 locations: Exercise Heart Disease Away at The First Annual Byrd Perry "Cardiothon"
Aug. 30, 2011 - PRLog -- Urban Active is hosting The First Annual Byrd Perry "Cardiothon" – 100 Minutes Of Heart-Pumping Cardio on Saturday, September 3rd to raise money for The American Heart Association.  This event is in honor of Urban Active Group X instructor, Allison Perry’s father, who she lost suddenly and unexpectedly due to a massive heart attack.

Heart disease is the #1 killer of both men and women in the US. The American Heart Association estimates that an American will suffer a coronary event every 25 seconds, and that one person a minute will die from one.

The keys to becoming heart healthy as a preventative include exercising for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.  In fact, studies say that for every hour of walking, you may increase your life expectancy by two hours.  Walking, swimming, cycling, jogging, skiing, aerobic dancing or any of dozens of other activities can help your heart. These activities cause you to feel warm, perspire and breathe heavily without being out of breath and without feeling any burning sensation in your muscles.

Locations Participating include: Pittsburgh, PA: Bakery Square - Charlotte, NC: Ballantyne - Omaha, NE: NW Omaha - Toldeo, OH: Maumee, Sylvania - Columbus, OH: Powell, Polaris, New Albany, Hilliard - Cleveland, OH: Legacy Village, Crocker Park - Cincinnati, OH: Westchester, Hyde Park - Louisville, KY: Taylorsville - Lexington, KY: Palumbo - Northern, KY: Florence, Bellevue

Urban Active is suggesting a $10 donation from members at the front desk.  Non-members can attend the class for $10.  All proceeds will go to The American Heart Association.
