17,000 Coloradans join the fight against heart disease

DENVER - On June 7, an estimated 17,000 Coloradans will join together at the Denver Performing Arts Complex to battle the fight against heart disease, the number one killer among Americans. The family-friendly event offers a pre and post-race expo, food, a kid's zone and more.

7NEWS Anchor, Kellie Patterson will be on-hand cheering participants on and sharing information with parents on getting their kids involved with Jump Rope for Heart.

Heart disease kills more women than all cancers combined. And congenital cardiovascular defects are the most common cause of infant deaths from birth defects. The goal of the Denver Heart & Stroke Walk is to save lives by raising funds for heart and stroke research.
