Walk held in Carbondale to raise awareness about heart disease

CARTERVILLE, IL (KFVS) -

It's a heart stopping statistic, every 38 seconds someone dies from heart disease in the US.

Hundreds of people took part in this years' southern Illinois Heartwalk at John A. Logan College to raise awareness about the disease.

Some teams walked just to show their support for the research and development of cures for heart disease.

Meanwhile, others had a more personal reason to walk.

The Fletcher girls designed their team shirts and walked for their grandfather who passed away 4-years- ago from heart disease.
