THIS HEART MONTH JOIN US FOR THE 8TH ANNUAL TOUR DE BROWARD THIS SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2017 AT MIRAMAR REGIONAL PARK – PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT JDCH HEART INSTITUTE AND OTHER PROGRAMS

Thousands gather at Miramar Regional Park united by one common cause – to support Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital (JDCH). The need is greater than ever to raise funds for South Broward’s only pediatric hospital, which has become the leading children’s hospital in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. In 2016, JDCH cared for more than 61,000 children needing hospital outpatient visits, nearly 7,500 pediatric surgeries, and almost 10,000 admissions and observation stays.

Funds from previous years have supported the hospital’s Heart Institute, which provides children with a complete continuum of care from diagnosis to repair of congenital defects and other cardiac dysfunctions. It houses the Pediatric Heart Transplant Program, one of only two of its kind in South Florida. Funds have also supported programs for the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, helping to improve the lives of many oncology patients and families. However, this year while continuing to support these programs, the funds raised will also help support other programs throughout Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, as it aims to grow in the community and continue to expand services.

February is Heart Month!

Today marks the first day of Heart Month! Heart Month will run from Feb 1 – 28, 2017. Check back daily for exciting news and event information.

        Heart disease is the leading cause of death for American adults, accounting for 1 in 4 deaths in the United States. Nearly half of Americans have at least one risk factor for heart disease, such as high blood pressure, obesity, physical inactivity, or an unhealthy diet. Risk also increases with age.
        Individuals of all ages can reduce their risk by making lifestyle changes and managing medical conditions with proper treatment. Take a CPR/AED class. Encourage your family members to make heart-healthy changes and offer support along the way.
        Our 2017 Heart Month focus is prevention. Learn more about heart disease prevention and heart-healthy behavior changes!
        We kick off the month with National Go Red Day on Friday, Feb. 3rd. On National Wear Red Day, be sure to wear something red to show your support for women with heart disease and stroke.
