A healthy heart is a sign of a healthy lifestyle. When you eat healthy, exercise daily, resuce stress, and stay away from health enemies, such as obesity, too much salt, high fat foods, smoking and alcohol, then you are on the road to living with a happy, healthy heart. When you pledge, you are making a commitment to help protect your heart and health by making better choices today and everyday, wherever your day may take you. Through the pledge campaign, individuals, of all ages, made a commitment to their heart health. The pledge helped individuals to take ownership of your own health. DIL Walk Foundation was able to motivate 10 000 individuals to take the pledge, with Mayor Naheed Nenshi, being the 10 000th pledge. Heart disease affects all of us, and together we can work to reduce the negative impacts. We invite you to print the pledge and take it.
