Hundreds Walk For A Good Heart

Hundreds of East Texans put on their walking shoes Saturday morning and walked for both a good cause and a good heart.  Nearly 800 East Texans woke up early to participate in this year's Heartwalk for the American Heart Association.  The event kicked off with a 5K run and a Kids' dash, followed by the big walk.  Organizers say heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the U.S.

"It's alarming, it's very alarming and at my age we really are concerned about it, so I'm doing my best to try to stay in shape and try to watch my diet and and a lot of exercise," said Heartwalk Participant Laquetta Klinge.
