Florida Hospital is Proud to Help Support the 2016 Tampa Bay Heart Walk
Date:11/16/2016

Florida Hospital is proud to support the American Heart Association’s biggest event of the year, the Tampa Bay Heart Walk, helping to raise more than $116,300 dollars. The walk took place Saturday, November 12th at Raymond James Stadium. According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the No. 1 killer of all Americans and someone dies from the disease every 39 seconds. Heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined and cardiovascular defects are the most common cause of infant death from birth defects.

Florida Hospital is determined to help raise awareness and encourages the Tampa Bay community to become more knowledgeable about this prevalent disease. By promoting and participating in this important cause and event, Florida Hospital hoped to inspire Tampa Bay to put their heart health at the top of mind.

“Florida Hospital is proud to sponsor the Tampa Bay Heart Walk. Millions of Americans live with heart disease. We know that education and prevention are key components in the fight to save lives from cardiovascular disease. Florida Hospital is at the forefront of prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of heart disease by utilizing groundbreaking research and leading edge medicine. We share the American Heart Association’s goal to help build healthier lives,” said Mike Schultz, President & CEO Florida Hospital West Florida Region.

The American Heart Association counted 35,000 people who came together for the Tampa Bay Heart Walk, raising a total of $3.6 million! Participants had a chance to explore Florida Hospital’s Mega Heart, which is a life sized inflatable and interactive heart exhibit that gives guests a firsthand look into how one’s heart functions.
