OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (KFOR ) – The chance of rain didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of this year’s American Heart Association Heart and Stroke Walk. Friends, family and co-workers braved the weather elements in becoming a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.

Event participants who joined the walk on today did so representing a commitment to more research, more people trained in lifesaving CPR, more medical breakthroughs and more champions for equitable health.
