Join Team CDA for the Heart and Stroke Walk

Molly Pereira Featured News

The CDA is partnering with the American Heart Association to help educate the public on the link between gum disease and cardiovascular disease. To kick off this partnership, the CDA has formed a team to walk in the 2018 Denver Heart and Stroke Walk on Saturday, June 2. Join our team!

More and more data and evidence suggest a direct link between oral health and heart health. Researchers are publishing eye-opening statistics like this one: Patients with gum disease face nearly twice the risk for cardiovascular disease as those with healthy gums.

About the Walk

Nearly 20,000 Coloradans are expected to gather at Mile High Stadium to celebrate better health for our state. Along with the walk, there is a 5k run, Yoga in the End Zone, a Kids’ Zone, and much more.

There is no minimum donation or fee to participate in the 5k walk. The 5k run and yoga each carry a $50 donation to participate.

Join the CDA staff and other members of the association to walk for a great cause. Sign up today!
