Charleston, SC – The Charleston team is gearing up for the 25th anniversary of the Lowcountry Heart Walk on September 29th at Riverfront Park. This event is a celebration of funds raised throughout the year to fight heart disease and stroke, fund critical lifesaving research, continue CPR trainings and education initiatives, and build a healthier community.
AHA ambassadors Pauline and Meyer Hayley recently shared their incredible story with Skirt Magazine in a two-page spread. Pauline suffered cardiac arrest in her sleep and was saved by her husband and daughter Hayley after they performed hands-only CPR for 10 minutes until EMS arrived. You can read their story here. Pauline and Hayley will by walking at the Lowountry Heart Walk alongside fellow survivors and caretakers, and we hope you can join them.
