Hundreds walk for heart disease & stroke in Eau Claire

Eau Claire (WQOW) – Carson Park was full of red shirts on Saturday morning as hundreds of people walked to raise money for heart disease and stroke prevention.

According to the walk’s website, the 27th annual event raised nearly $25,000 which will go to the American Heart Association. That money is from pre-registration and online donations.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and the Chippewa Valley, according to walk organizers.
