People of all ages turned out to participate in the American Heart Association’s 10th annual River City Start! Heart Walk on Saturday at Riverfront Park. “We want to get every generation because every generation is at risk,” said Lynda Edwards, regional director of American Heart Association.  The American Heart Association walk drew about 200 people to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke, and hand out information on how to decrease the risk of heart disease and live a healthy life.
