Heart Ball raises heart disease awareness

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Cardiovascular disease is responsible for one in three American deaths every year, which is one every 40 seconds. That is why the American Heart Association is waging war on the killer.

WAVY News 10’s Tom Schaad hosted the annual Heart Ball Saturday at Norfolk Botanical Garden to raise awareness and most of all, to fund life-saving research in preventing heart disease and stroke.

WAVY TV 10 is a proud sponsor in helping the American Heart Association’s goal of improving heart health in Hampton Roads by 20 percent by the year 2020.
