WHY: Heart disease is the No. 1 killer in the U.S. and physical inactivity doubles the risk. Healthy For Good is the American Heart Association’s national movement that aims to help Americans get moving and reduce their risk by creating a culture of physical activity and health in order to live longer, healthier lives. Through fundraisers like Home Runs for Heart, the American Heart Association supports lifesaving research and educational programs.
