September 30th is World Heart Day
Heart disease and stroke is the world's largest killer, claiming 17.5 million lives each year. That's why World Heart Day was created, to create public awareness of risk factors for heart disease and stroke and to promote preventive measures.
The theme of this year's World Heart Day is “Team Up for Healthy Hearts!” Organized by World Heart Federation members and partners, World Heart Day activities include free screenings, walks, runs, jump rope sessions, fitness events, public talks, scientific forums, exhibitions, concerts, sports tournaments and much more.
