For most of us, cardiovascular disease—which can lead to a heart attack or stroke—has touched our lives in one way or another. It is the leading cause of death in the United States each year, claiming one in four lives. But it doesn't have to be that way.

Together, we can help lead a legacy of fewer lives lost. The Legacy We Lead aims to halt the rise of deaths from cardiovascular disease. Take the pledge below to be a part of the change—you'll complete it in a heartbeat, and the benefits will last for generations to come.
