♥ More than 866,000 North Americans die each year from heart disease and stroke - one every seven minutes
♥ 1 in every 4 deaths is related to heart disease
♥ About 47% of sudden cardiac deaths occur outside a hospital. This suggests that many people with heart disease don't act on early warning signs
As one of the top training companies we are pleased to give back and raise funds to support researchers who are working on breakthrough treatments that save lives and improves survivor recovery.
