UTICA, N.Y. -- A big part of raising funds for the American Heart Association, and awareness of heart health – is the WKTV Heart Telethon.
If you can't participate by walking in America’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk, you can participate by picking up the phone, and making a donation.
On average someone dies of cardiovascular disease every 38 seconds, according to the AHA. Someone has a stroke every 40 seconds, and someone dies of a stroke every three minutes.
Think about that, and think about how valuable your time is, then think about picking up the phone and pledging a donation to support the American Heart Association.
The American Heart Association has funded more than $4.3 billion in research since 1949.
To make a donation, call 1-866-374-9588.
